I think your question would be better asked to the developers' mailing
list, but I will nonetheless try to answer it here:
- there is no extended ODF version, unless of course you refer to the
   "extended" ODF format used in This specific version
   had been enabled and was a vendor specific one because it was
   essentially the subsequent drafts of the ODF 1.2 specification that
   were implemented by Once ODF 1.2 will be fully out,
   there will be no extended version, but only extended as in
   "subsequent draft specification".

Well, this is the reason why I spoke about *future* LibO version. ;-)

IMO, it isn't only a question about "better defaults", but a real turning point for LibO.

I'll try to clarify my point of view.

Let's say that by the time ODF 1.2 will be out, every feature currently supported from LibO will be in ODF specification too. That would be simply great.

Then, what?

Will LibO 4.0/5.0 stay at ODF 1.2 until ODF 2.0 (or whatever version) will be officially approved, becoming so the "Lingua Franca" in exchanging documents for people and organizations or will LibO try to implement more features that *may* be included in ODF 2.0, becoming so a technical cutting edge application?

They are two completely different visions of the project, I think.

I hope you understand what my point is, here.
