I don't see the definition of table-source-cell-ranges-attlist.  I
believe that's an accidental omission.

More importantly, if we can change the existing table:cell-range-address
attribute to allow a list of cell range addresses, instead of just one
cell range like it currently allows, then we won't need to introduce a
new element to define multiple source ranges.  I personally like that
approach better because if we allow both <table:source-cell-range> and
<table:source-cell-ranges> as child elements of
<table:data-pilot-table>, then we would need to specify a desired
behavior if both <table:source-cell-range> and
<table:source-cell-ranges> are given.  IMO limiting to just allowing one
of these elements, instead of allowing both would be a better approach.

What are your thoughts on these points?
