Heh.

Nope, though it most probably was suggested at some point. One reason
why not would be the dependency on a registry rather than HTTP-based
discovery. But a few areas of the spec were left open-ended (e.g. how
to use transformation mechanisms other than XSLT), anticipating a
possible future revision - in part because of time constraints, in
part because of lack of deployment experience.

For future ref. I did a quick ref:

(PDF I'm afraid - if you know of any way of getting lightweight HTML
from an OpenOffice doc, please let me know)

Suggestion out of the blue - for a simpler format, what about Turtle?

Cheers,
Danny.
