OK, but organizationally I understood your suggestion to be:

-- Gather all formatting attributes (SVG, FO, style:*) into a single 
chapter (separate from current chapter 18)

 From what you say above, are you suggesting that we need separate 
treatment of all formatting elements and their children?

Not disagreeing, just trying to understand the extent of your observation.

Such that given the current structure the text would have the following 
form (roughly speaking):

(Each of the following sections containing chapters)

Structural Elements

Structural Attributes

Formatting Elements

Formatting Attributes

Or some other order, my question here being division into respective 
buckets of materials.

I suppose with the new scripts that you have developed we will have less 
difficulty keeping down the re-use of element/attribute names, etc.

BTW, for anyone reading this post, this is *not* a proposal for any 
version of ODF. It is simply an exploration of how to best present the 
material without substantive change to the text.

Hope you are at the start of a great week!
