Dear all,

I would like to verify with you my interpretation of Section "5.4 EXI
Options", EXI Format 1.0.
According to that section "There are no fallback option values provided by
this specification for use in the absence of the whole EXI Options part."

This essentially mean that when EXI Options Presence Bit is not set and the
decoder is not informed with out-of-band EXI Options it should disregard
the EXI stream and not try to parse it using the default values.

In order for the decoder to use the default values the Options Presence Bit
must be set and an empty EXI options document must be presented in the

A simple response confirming/contradict the statement would be very helpful
to me and the EXI community I believe.

Thank you in advance!

Best Regards,
Rumen Kyusakov
