We need 4 categories for the game. Another idea is also to split it in
other groups and also add older standards (not just Open Standards).
Than we could add MS OOXML / DOCX, .sxw, ...

Someone here able to do that?

Can someone answer the questions? And than we should double check.

What about: we just give 1 point if the question is answered with yes,
and 0 if answered with no?
