Please refer my clarification to Italo's information up-thread. The
Transitional and Strict formats are both defined in ISO/IEC 29500.

In ISO/IEC 29500 there is only one transitional definition, while
Microsoft has produced three different transitional versions (two
without definition, i.e. Transitional 2010 and Transitional 2013) within
the same pseudo-standard. Transitional, by the way, is not defined as a
standard format (because it is incompatible with the Gregorian Calendar,
and because it includes proprietary blobs not released within the
"covenant not to sue").

OOXML Strict is a standard, but it is supported properly only by
LibreOffice (which means that the reference implementation is not
available, and in any case the free reference implementation is missing).

So, no free reference implementation, no standard (unless you see
lock-in as a feature of a standard document format).
