AFAICT, there are two possibilities: a generic WordML schema used by
default, owned by Microsoft but not publicly documented; alternatively,
your own schema, fully custom, not custom*ized* WordML.
In addition, WordML is by no means the default; that will still be the
Office 9/10 format used today. So just saying "Save" will not lead to
any kind of interoperability.

that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
