Subject: Open formula group, and getting ahead of ourselves?

Just had a quick look at the latest open formula group output.

For many of the functions I see such as:
Syntax: MIDB( Text T ; BytePosition Start ; ByteLength Length )

The pseudotypes ByteLength and BytePosition are Integers, but their
exact meanings and values are not further defined by this

I.e. for (some part) of the spec a function is defined and each term
of the function is refined. Not exactly a formal grammar, but nodding
in that direction.

If there's anyone on this group also on the formula group, how
might we suggest they consider testability for their syntax statements?

quite definately future work, but if that group can do  it, then surely
the ODF TC could move to this mode of working.
