The PDF of the paper about RCT (Repaired Change-Tracking) provides a pattern-like model for the interoperability assurance for WYSIWYG document using standard document-file formats.  The author's final submission version is available for download in the bibliographic entry at <http://nfoworks.org/notes/2015/06/n150601.htm>.

A key finding in this paper is that in the absence of a profiled envelope in which there is interoperability assurance when interchanging documents using a format such as ODF, there is no prospect for such interchange working properly with change-tracking.  

Conditions on which such an envelope can be established and change-tracking accomplished in a dependable way are sketched.
