CMIS defines a domain model plus bindings that can be used by applications to manipulate content stored in a repository. I would like to see this added to Vibe and File for a more common accepted and 'rich' way to access documents in these systems with (fe) Microsoft Office or LibreOffice/LibreOffice Online.

CMIS provides a common data model covering typed files and folders with generic properties that can be set or read. There is a set of services for adding and retrieving documents ('objects'). There may be an access control system, a checkout and version control facility, and the ability to define generic relations.

CMIS is a Required Standard for Dutch Government Institutions when they buy products
