I see. I should have also linked to this response in replying to Rob (http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/oiic-formation-discuss/200806/msg00716.html ). The wording you provide here, in part, might be suitable to help define the scope and potential deliverables for the TC charter .. and without being too specific. > > Perhaps based on demand for some of these things (a > specific profile, a specific diff need, etc), work will be > undertaken by outside groups in parallel to OIIC TC work > and issues will be reported to the TC as they crop up.

See this reply http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/oiic-formation-discuss/200806/msg00717.html I'd go further than with the reply you gave at the top.. or rather, I'd be less general, since standardizing such algorithms/mappings (and dealing with associated tid bits) is something that could be usefully done on an ongoing basis to address numerous market use cases (besides those of the ODF compliance tester). These use cases would make themselves known not all at once but over time (not to mention it takes time to implement any such std alg).
