Hmm sure, I wasn't talking about the separate XML files (which indeed are not
self-container, and therefore only good for an XML editor).

I was talking about the "all-in-one", aka "flat-xml", format, which is self-contained
and therefore appropriate for any OpenDocument-compliant application.
Section 1.7 is about "office documents that [...] are not contained in a package",
not individual files inside a package.
