Subject: <text:sequence> behaviour (ODF all versions)

Dear all,

6.4.13 has:

Once a sequence variable has been declared, it can be used in sequence
fields throughout the document. Most sequence fields simply increment
and display the sequence variable. However, sequence fields can also
assume a new start value at any given position in a document. This start
value is computed using a formula which is contained in the sequence
field. If a sequence field without a start value is added, the office
application software automatically inserts an expression of the type

* What is a "sequence field" (the text content of a <text:sequence>
element> ?)

* How is it determined whether a sequence field is a member of the set
of "most sequence fields" ?

* What does "at any given position" mean?

* if this element may contain a "formula", what is the expression
language to be used?

* what is "a sequence field without a start value", and what does "is
added" mean?

* would the phrase "office application software" be better expressed in
terms of a conformant consumer/producer?

* what does it mean to "inserts an expression of the type variable+1" -
specifically what is the "expression" and does "insert" mean to insert
into the rendered respresentation, the document itself, or ... ?
