It's there. 'current and future versions of ODF' How many would you

That's my objection.

I'm sorry. In which case I'd like the TC to be rechartered to work 'the next'
version of ODF, as and when it is an Oasis standard and not before.

No. I never mentioned profiles.
I caveated it to 'pixel perfect' as per previous discussions on this list.

No. I am objecting to scoping the TC to work on any and all versions
of ODF ad infinitum  into the future.
