six questions for MS-OOXML

There have been on-going arguments against voting MS-OOXML as ISO/IEC. FSFEurope (in consultation with FSF India) has compiled six questions to national standardisation bodies to be asked against MS-OOXML. In a nutshell, these six questions are:

  1. Application Independence ?
  2. Supporting Pre-exisiting Open Standards ?
  3. Backward Compatibility for all Vendors ?
  4. Proprietary extensions ?
  5. Dual Standards ?
  6. Legally Safe ?

It is required that MS-OOXML provides conclusive answers to the above questions to be voted for ISO/IEC.

I have also posted the on-going discussions in India with regard to the above arguments.
