I would still very much like to receive feedback from other potential implementors, e.g. Lingsoft and Knowledge Concepts (Cc). Does it look ok to them? (If you haven't followed the earlier discussion, there is an archive available at http://lists.puimula.org/pipermail/libvoikko/)

It would also be nice to know whether there are any concerns for adding support for this specification to hfst-ospell.

I will leave the specification as is for another couple of weeks, before I declare it ready as version 1.0, unless more feedback requires further refinement.
