Subject: RE: [dita] Complexity of bookmap content model

Can you give a concrete example of a book that has appendices in parts?
What does the overall TOC look like and why was it important to put the
appendices in parts?

A consequence of the model you propose is that there is nothing to force
appendices to appear at the end of the book.
