Simply extending ODF (with good features, of course) on a vendor
basis is just fragmentation, IMO.

A healthy dose of vendor-specific extensions is one of the hallmarks
of a working ecosystem, if you ask me - at least if you want for ODF
to be the default document format. ;)

Uhm... again ;-)

Technically speaking, it may be true, because users always ask for new features, but when we're talking about open formats and document exchange, it's quite different.

If I have 20.000 documents that use a feature implemented in LibO only and I have to exchange/migrate such documents or I implement that feature in other applications by spending good money or I'm "locked in" (pay attention, I've used quotes here).

Just my 2c, of course.
