Subject: Re: [dita] suggested update to topic "What are topics?"

I think this rewrite addresses my concerns and clarifies the intent of 
the spec and puts what the DTDs allow into a reasonable context.

In this sentence, the term "document" is somewhat ambiguous since it 
could mean either "XML document" or "unit of publication". I think that 
XML document is intended, since it would be hard to create a useful unit 
of publication from a single topic (at least as long as sections can't 
nest :-)) but it might be good to qualify "document" in this case.
