currently LibreOffice writes invalid documents, in case you set the
background of a text document to a gradient fill. That is
I suggest not to use the loext namespace to solve the problem, but to
handle it this way:
Add the attribute draw:style-name to the element <style:master-page> and
let is refer a <style:style> element with style:family="drawing-page".
This family allows all the needed attributes.
(1) No private namespace needed. The document validates against the
(2) The style family "drawing-page" provides the attribute
draw:background-size. With its value "full" it would be possible to
implement the long demanded background fill till page edge without any
change to ODF1.2.
It might be needed to make some additions to the textual part in the
ODF1.2 specification in "19.219.27<style:master-page>" to explicitly
allow this for text documents and spreadsheets too.
What do you think about this approach?
