There could be some interesting legal problems there, too. If the legal
protections regarding copyright and (in the US/AUS/NZ) software patents
are contingent on 'full' implementation or some level of compliance, then
a convoluted specification might be too difficult, or even impossible, for
anyone else to fulfill.
MSO2003 is a dead format anyway. However, the concern above probably
applies to MOOX because although MS reps have hooted and crowed about
MOOX, it still has not yet published any specific protections regarding
copyright and (in the US/AUS/NZ) sw patents for implementors of MOOX.
