Subject: RE: [office-comment] OpenDocument 1.2v7-02: Table of Contents - Translatability

To clarify, Item (5), I meant in terms of its usability as a table of
contents by someone who doesn't already understand the standard well enough
to recognize the element names, especially when they are not native English
speakers.  I would hope that the TOC be translatable and the fact that
element names are not translatable strikes me as an impediment if headings
are solely element names.

Actually #5 doesn't seem like an issue to me. The element names are 
never translated since that is what appears in the schema and in the 
document instance.
