Like the fact that ODF lacks a formula specification. I see from your
email that you are thinking of the GrokDoc page. I wasn't.

After learning more about this, I decided I can't sensibly edit it. Rob
Weir made some comments about it that made me think twice. Both Miguel
and Rob have valid points, but I see weaknesses in both (Miguel
regarding the age of the specs, and Rob ignoring the fact that OXML also
mentions "Enhanced" Metafiles). I don't have a definite resolution, and
I fear I'll screw up if I haste towards an edit.

It can perfectly well be a time issue. First, this is not necessarily a
very small side discussion to me. Maybe I think it's important. And
second, maybe it does take a lot more time than I first thought to
figure out what that page really should say.
May you live in interesting times.
May people in high places take notice of you.
May all your wishes come true.
