Dear Maël and Basil,

That is indeed what is says. It explicitly states that the MS Office formats 
have to be compatible with the XP/2003 version or *older*.

It also states that the ODF version should be compatible with ODF 1.2.

Of the top of my head, that might not be a bad move — newer versions of MS 
Office support ODF, so from those users you can just use that.

Interestingly § 5 states that as long as the documents are internally 
circulated, these can be in any format as long as all parties involved agree 
on it.

§ 6 simply states that the status quo in EU is that a consensus is still 
needed between member states and that most used formats are:

 -	ODF (as the candidate for *the* standard format in EU)
 -	PDF
 -	MS Office XP/2003

Hope this helps.
