CS_XLOTUS_READ_DEFAULT (0) Generates non-proprietary X-LOTUS properties. This is the default if this property is not set prior to reading.
CS_XLOTUS_READ_NONE (1) Omits all X-LOTUS properties.
CS_XLOTUS_READ_ALL (2) Generates proprietary X-LOTUS properties. The caller must know how to update these.
