      "The form:control-implementation ... should be instantiated.

      Amend 19.260 form:control-implementation: "The form:control-implementation ... should be instantiated. If the consumer supports the form element this attribute is used with, but does not support the specific concrete rendition or implementation, the consumer shall ignore the form:control-implementation attribute and use its own rendition of the form element.

      Description

      Related to OFFICE-1286 which is about the possible removal - in ODF Next - of the attribute altogether. This one is about including a fallback mechanism for ODF 1.2.

      Currently it reads
      "The form:control-implementation attribute specifies a specific concrete rendition or implementation of a control that should be instantiated."

      Since the elements this attribute is usable with (<form:button>, <form:time>, ...) already provide information what type of control is to be used, an implementation is able to (and should) provide a fallback mechanism in case the value of form:control-implementation represents an unsupported or unknown rendition
