Hi Mohammad,

First, let me also CC Thorsten as he is also on the TC and is more
active than I.  I can barely keep up with the activity of ODF TC these
days, so I consider myself a non-active member of the TC. But anyways...

Can you explain in detail what actual file format change you propose,
and how it is to be used with specific use cases, using real world use
cases.  The description you gave above is still a bit vague, and for
anyone to make a proposal needs a bit more clarity.

Also, so far Thorsten and I are the only ones participating on the TC,
and I don't think we can handle all our ODF needs for the whole project.
We clearly need more people participating the TC.  I have to be honest;
I have enough things to do even without interacting with the ODF TC
stuff, so I don't want to give people the wrong impression that I'm the
one to talk to for all ODF needs, to avoid unnecessary frustration on
both sides.
