Subject: Re: [office] 2.1 Document Roots


I've noticed that section 2.1 in fact still does not list the names of 
the streams that are used within packages and then contain the variuos 
root elements.

I've added this stream names now to the table contained in that section. 
I thinks this makes the situation clearer.
