There was a thread that we were involved in awhile back in which I was
simply asking us to define the function and semantics of fields, and
I'm just asking that we do that.

OK, fine, but I'm just asking you to explain the "clear difference"
you note above. If it's clear, then surely you can say more about than
that it's a compatibility mechanism for OOXML?

+1, and no argument here.
