Subject: RE: [dita] Question about sectiondiv (item 12021)

I think I may have confused things by placing several questions in one
email. So, to perhaps explain things better and return to one specific

We have approved a new element called <sectiondiv>. This is used to group
content within a section. It does not nest other section elements - the
primary purpose that I know of is to group content within a section for
easy conref or filtering. It is also useful for creating structures within
a section during specialization. That may be an oversimiplification, but
that's my understanding.

My question is - given that we are adding this element to group things
within a section, and that we already have several specializations of
section, should that element also be available in those specializations
(refsyn, context, result, process, prereq, and postreq)?
