Sure, we already support excel, ODS, google sheets and other formats in our implementation libraries, and platforms that build on them like OpenSpending. Not sure about if/how we elevate this to be explicit in the specs (it is easy to do; not sure it will be a good decision though, need to think about it).
Also on multiple sheets in a book (Excel, ODS, Google Sheets, etc.). We work pretty closely with Eric at Metatab ( http://metatab.org/ - which is essentially a DP descriptor as CSV ) and basically, we are working towards directly integrating that as an official serialisationof the specs.

We need to address how we maintain the registry going forward, as this is starting to become quite important for various things we have coming in the next 6 months (additional DP profiles, semantic concept profiles, etc.), but for now, there is a minimal process I described a while back here, which you can follow so we can start a review of any new profiles https://github.com/frictionlessdata/specs#adding-a-new-specification
