Subject: Re: [office] Spec: clarification of "restart numbering" feature.

Hi all,

my action item was to clarify how restart numbering works.

In OOo, it currently works as follows:
- text:start-value restarts the numbering of the _current_ level with 
the given number.
- This affects enclosed lists, in that their numbering is restarted with 
a upper-level list item anyway.
- List numbering and outline numbering behave identically.
- text:restart-numbering appears not to be implemented.
- There is a UI feature to restart list numbering. This causes the list 
(in XML) to be split in two, which restarts the numbering at all levels.

by just starting a new list; that is possible, but doesn't seem to make 
to much sense. What would make sense is to use it like text:start-value, 
except that the starting value is taken from the list style (and not 
explicitly given); this would require changing the spec. Or it could be
