Summary

Proposal owner:

Florian Reuter

Proposal short name:

Store default values in ODF.

Rationale

Use cases:

For interoperability we need to write out the default values assumed by the application.

There is often more than one way to accomplish a task.  For your use case, what other alternatives did you consider, and why did you find them inadequate?  

Requested changes to the ODF Standard

Impacts

Conformance:

Does this proposal add any mandatory features or behaviors to ODF documents or applications?

Backwards compatibility:

If we make this change, what will be the impact on existing ODF processors?

Accessibility impact:

Will this feature require review by the Accessibility Subcommittee?  For example, does it add structure to the document that can be navigated, store a user-viewable string or associate a label with content?
