Seeing that noone replied so far, just some thoughts...

Another source of information might be the drawingML spec, which is
supposed to be able to describe all features VML has. But the first is
part of OOXML strict, so possibly it has a bit better description.

You mean the ODF filter of MS Office?

Storing the filter name is not great -- I think loading from MSO formats
and saving as ODF is a frequent use-case. If saving as ODF and reloading
changes how the commands are interpreted, that's problematic.
