Hmmm, ... unckeck option?

IF a file get renamed, then the (OOo) package should ask, IF all 
metadata should be stripped away or kept in the new document. Just my

Interesting point, but I have some trouble understanding how this will 
work in practice, e.g. when renaming/moving the document. This poses 
some of the problems that are touched also in one of the issues I posted 
on the OOo Bugzilla (see Automatic Backup Repository,

Indeed, I do not know, IF this feature needs to be specified inside the 
ODF-document (BUT some implementation details  mentioned in the 
'Automatic Backup Repository' might be well suited for mentioning here).
