Thank you for taking the time to write this one page summary.

When reading this document I ask myself how the targeted
interoperability between applications will be reached.

When you talk about spreadsheets, people think about Excel or
LibreOffice, but I would like them to think about the xlsx format and
the OpenDocument Spreadsheet format instead, since there are many more
tools than can read/write these formats.

If separation between data and tools is the target, I think we should
always put the emphasis on the data model which is the real point of
contact between the pod and the application and the real show stopper:
if I send you xlsx and your spreadsheet software can't read it, the
communication is over.

Same goes for our ontology-based data shared on the web, doesn't it ?
