Open Malaysia: ODF Support Is Also UOF Support
Apparently, someone had suggested that Malaysia adopt UOF instead of ODF as their XML-based open format. This article concludes that by supporting ODF, UOF support is included, and that therefore, no explicit selection of UOF is needed.
ISO 26300 can be translate and interoperate well with UOF documents today, so by adopting ISO 26300, Malaysia is will also have UOF support. It is not necessary to consider UOF today, because the efforts of harmonizing these two formats will guarantee future interoperability. Already in existence are free third party tools to translate between the two formats with good documentation on the differences.
