Subject: Positioning/Addressing of text in frames


I am still not up-to-date with the state of discussion, but getting there 
slowly. Today the question came up how to address content inside frames with 
the concepts of MCT. Or how frames are mapped to the concepts in MCT in 

The latest draft hints to me that frames (or rather their content) are mapped 
to components:
--- 8< ---
2. Component
Common disjoint component within a document, e.g. image
--- 8< ---

In ODF 1.2 §10.4.1 "General" (about "Frames") it says
--- 8< ---
A frame is a container for enhanced content like text boxes, images or 
objects. A frame may contain multiple renditions of content. A consumer may 
choose the representation that it supports best.
Each child element of a frame is a different representation of the same 
content. The order of content elements reflects the document author's 
preference for rendering, with the first child element being preferred.
--- 8< ---
from http://docs.oasis-open.org/office/v1.2/os/OpenDocument-v1.2-os-part1.html#a10_4_1General

Or the RNG for ODF 1.2 has:
--- 8< ---
	<define name="draw-frame">
		<element name="draw:frame">
			<!-- ... -->
					<ref name="draw-text-box"/>
					<ref name="draw-image"/>
					<ref name="draw-object"/>
					<ref name="draw-object-ole"/>
					<ref name="draw-applet"/>
					<ref name="draw-floating-frame"/>
					<ref name="draw-plugin"/>
					<ref name="table-table"/>
--- 8< ---

So I have a <draw:frame> with inside first a <draw:object> (e.g. holding 
another <office-document>) and then a <draw:text-box> as fallback.
How would I address text and text containers or even other framed 
objects/components inside the <draw:text-box>?

In other words, how are the alternative contents of a frame translated into 
the "Meta Components" lingo and how would they be addressed, to then address 
their content?
