What should a 1.2 application do with content from 2.0?
Perhaps we can add some language to ODF 1.2 for how an ODF 1.2 processor
should process unknown elements from ODF 1.3.+. However, we can't, in any
formal way, tell an ODF 1.0 processor what to do with ODF 1.2 documents,
since we cannot change the ODF 1.0 specification.
Lots of things the TC could do.
If 1.2 defines a clear action on 'forwards compatibility'
that might act as guidance for retroactive action on forwards compatability?
I'll post a comment to the comments list if that might help getting it
on the TC's agenda.
