+ - Norway votes "no with comments" to OOXML

Submitted by kandresen
kandresen (712861) writes "Standards Norway has rejected the OOXML, citing too many weaknesses in the current specifications, however states the vote may be changed to "unconditional yes" if the comments (PDF) are addressed.

Summary:
  • The Scope clause in Part 1 is inappropriate for an ISO standard
  • Rework into an ISO-style multi-part standard
  • Rework into a much more concise standard
  • The information model in unnecessarily complex
  • All examples should confirm to the XML specification
  • DrawingML should be a separate standard
  • OPC should be a separate standard
  • The specification should not include binary notations
  • The specification should not include unspecified features
  • Option sets should be extensible and should avoid cultural bias
  • OOXML should reference, use, and confirm to existing standards where applicable
  • Lack of consistency in notation of values and dimensions
