I think the reason why people would want to 'interleave' their custom
markup with the OpenDocument markup is that this makes it realy easy to
apply your custom markup to specific parts of the document without
bothering on how you would reference it otherwise.
This still is a bit like XForms, where you use bindings to connect
content and data. Maybe it would make sense to think about whether the
binding concept that we have introduced for XForms might be extended to
other parts of the format...
