Why am I not surprised that a Sun representative simply ignores my
business process chain use case and declares a retreat rather than
addressing it? Perhaps because Sun (and KDE) did the same when I
raised that use case while I was still on the TC?

My "entire argument rests on this misunderstanding?" Fast rewrite of
history there, Michael. The spec was ambiguous as I said and the
ambiguity was blessed by the ODF TC in the form of its adoption of the
KDE-Sun proposal for ODF 1.2.  Interop be damned. That proposal had
nothing to do with interop, as I said.

Best regards,


Universal Interoperability Council
