Getting to grips with Custom XML

Dear all,

Should we be removing the Custom XML feature from OOXML? And if so from Strict, or Transitional, or both? 

Since this technology does not appear to be currently implemented, and seems unlikely to be implemented ever (I'd be keen to know if anybody has information to the contrary) it serves no purpose in the standard - and may in fact work against the interests of practical interoperability.

Perhaps this could be a topic for Discussion in Berlin?

- Alex.
