Subject: Re: [oiic-formation-discuss] Reason and example arguing for the use of an ODF (or XML) canonical form

> If I understand correctly and if I am thinking clearly right now, it makes sense that standardizing the use of central registration of some sort would be a way to advance interop. 1.5 and/or maybe elsewhere would require some changes. The main idea being to standardize more constraints on the use of foreign elements/attribs, with suggested examples given: to require use of an ODF specific central registration or perhaps require use of some existing identifying framework like DNS or preferably something more secure.

The logic is solid, just that prior experience says that central
registries don't work,
don't get used, do get abused and have, in the past, failed to fulfill
their promise.
