Yes, but we can't do it parallel,  as before complete (1) we can't commit
the code to the master repository.

We can do that, not difficult for us. In my opinion, maybe ODF committee
should consider to announce ODF Toolkit as its reference realization, as we
have passion and ability to follow its newest version ;)

Good idea!  Actually, we have a  "samples" directory in Simple API.
There is a sample which is used to check apache license info in ODF
document. We have a agreement to share it to Rat project.
Other demo code could also move here, or we create a new top level

Yes, this is a question. Shall we organize these demo by sub-project or in
a top level diectory together?
Now, nearly all of the demos is about Simple API.

In the foreseeable future, Simple API and ODFDOM should be the most active

Let's wait for Yegor's answer;)
