I honestly think the above can be answered quite simple; at specific points in 
the specification we can add foreign properties and we can ask the 
implementation to store those unchanged.
Naturally an ODF with <foo:bar>  or <bar:baz> doesn't know either and it 
typically can preserve neither, or both.

So, IMOHO the drawing of the line is as simple as "implementation X preserves 
foreign properties at position Y in the spec, or not".
