CSS Text

In ODF 1.2 CD05-1, the only normative reference to CSS is

[CSS2] Bert Bos, Håkon Wium Lie, Chris Lilley, Ian Jacobs, Cascading Style
Sheets, level 2, http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-CSS2-19980512, W3C, 1998. [a
W3C Recommendation]

There are six direct references to [CSS2] in the body of ODF 1.2 CD05-1.

There is a non-normative reference to
[CSS3Text] Michel Suignard, CSS3 Text Module,
http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/CR-css3-text-20030514, W3C, 2003. [A W3C Candidate

The only references to [CSS3Text] are all in informative notes and there is
no reliance on [CSS3Text] in any normative language.  The features for which
this information is provided are ones specified under the ODF 1.2 Schema and
namespaces and it would not seem to matter whether later versions of a CSS3
Text Module differ.

Dear colleagues,

I am very sorry for not attending the teleconference.

W3C has CSS Text.  Some features of an old working draft 
of CSS Text have been copied to ODF 1.0.  Since then, W3C 
has revised CSS Text and the copied features have been changed.
I do not know how ODF 1.2 handles CSS Text.

W3C has been very slow, but some experts are now working 
very hard for completing CSS Text in a very timely manner.  
This is because CSS Text is strongly needed for EPUB. 
I am wondering if we should also ask W3C to accelerarte CSS Text.
