Fascinating article on what happens when you take the OOXML spec at its word and go edit documents by hand. It seems MS Office is very intolerant of this sort of (valid) behaviour and that OOXML is insufficient for interoperability.
Having 23 of your business partners sign up the day of the vote is probably not against any rules but it's ethically suspect to say the least. OOXML continues its track record as the dirtiest application for standardisation in recent years.
Awesome new technique - watch the video.
