So it's not a case that LO is not implementing the existing ODF

OASIS establishes the standards, no? If such is the case: What
you've written, above, is what we call "putting the cart before the
horse." And that's putting the best possible light on it.
This is not how the ODF standard is developed. As Italo has indicated it
happens slowly over a long time, and there are various reasons for this.
There is a statement on the OASIS website (which unfortunately I cannot find
at present) which indicates that in order for a new feature to be included
in ODF-Next by OASIS, it must first be implemented in a few different pieces
of software e.g., Apache OO, LO, and AbiWord (2+ or 3+ implementations from
memory). ODF needs to be practical (based on real-world use cases) and
community-driven rather than a theoretical specification developed in
isolation by a chosen few.
LibreOffice does use the ODF 1.2 and that did become an ISO standard a
couple of years ago.
No. The information provided by Italo up-thread is correct:
... ODF 1.2 which is in the process of becoming an ISO standard (backward
compatible with ODF 1.0). Standard definitions, by their own nature, are
