Subject: RE: [dita] Question about DITA 1.2 item 12021

As mentioned further in this thread, I wouldn't want
to be able to have some sections in a bodydiv or
sectiondiv and others not.  It would make it almost
impossible to number such sections, for example.

I would think we should allow either sections or
sectiondivs, but not a mix of both in any context.

Similarly with bodydiv.

Given such broad issues, it makes me wonder if this
proposal is well enough baked to go into dita 1.2.
