Users might want to have one click way to have such a setup exported into an XForms website where users can submit bills and from which the first user can download both kind of mentioned OpenDocuments (single bills and the aggregated table).

Then to add more fun, users of the website could be puzzled by the form/document they need to fill and could answer some of the slots with some comment in some semantic annotation markup that answers the question kinda like "what do you mean 'total' here?". 

And attach to the comment two possible answers to the form question by means of some serialization of their billing data in some standard billing ontology, taking into account two different VAT calculations, say, one for their country, one for the country the form publisher is in.

Then the OO form publishing user would check out the data and see that some is not valid, read the comment, set up or just use some filter to appropriately pipe the user data from the standard/user ontology to the representation it was expected to be in in the doc.

Or add some explanations based on this experience directly to that field of the form and republish it.

Or add to their form one or more standard-ontology-based way to directly express the info they need, i.e. effectively incorporating their users' app/workflow better value into theirs.
