Subject: Re: [office-comment] Unclear sentence in 2.5 of ODF 1.0

I will have to confirm this but I think the intent was to say that a 
script does not "fix" an object model that other scripts must use with 
reference to an ODF document.

In other words, you might have a script, represented by an 
<office:script> that views the ODF document where it occurs via the DOM 
model and in the same document, I may have another <office:script> 
element that uses a *non-DOM* model of the document. Neither one 
interferes with the other and of course, support might vary from 
application to application.

Actually, the entire paragraph looks like "note" material to me at best 
since the models used by scripts isn't something that we attempt to 
describe or specify.

Assuming my interpretation is confirmed, I am leaning towards suggesting 
that the entire paragraph simply be stricken or at least re-written to 
make the intent clear.

Hope you are having a great day!
