+ the future:

+ potentially in point-zero releases less serious (Petr?)

* all bugs created by LibO considered invalid by MS Office
+ we do the right thing: putting 1.2 in the manifest version (Thorsten)
+ recent bug-fix in a 3.4 CWS
+ ODF 1.2 makes the version mandatory, and must have value=1.2
+ if it is seen, MS Office will claim it is invalid.
+ it's not possible for us to write valid ODF 1.2 docs about
which MS Office doesn't complain
+ MS Office offers to 'repair' & import it
+ that looks scary.
+ it's not our bug
+ Need to release-note this:
+ avoid recommending the legacy 1.1 format due to
data loss concerns
* 3.5 most annoying bugs ...
+ 23 open (of 71 total)
