LXer: The Contradictory Nature of OOXML
Published at LXer:

OOXML, the Microsoft Office XML-based formats, are now in the adoption queue at ISO/IEC.* That process takes six months -* the same amount of time that the PAS process takes (the route used by OASIS to submit ODF to ISO/IEC) but has two steps rather than one, although the practical result is much the same. During the first one-month step, any member may submit "contradictions," which, loosely defined,*means aspects in which a proposed standard conflicts with already adopted ISO/IEC standards and Directives.*
