ODF 1.2-1 5.4.1 <text:section> Fails to deal with modified/unmodified limitations

                 Key: OFFICE-3385
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3385
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Part 1 (Schema), Text
    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05
            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
             Fix For: ODF 1.0 Errata CD 6

The <text:section> is allowed to contain any sequence of element-content instances.  The text suggests that this sequence of child elements is obtained from some source.  The presence of the text permits a consumer to interpret the document without re-accessing the source (or even when the source is not accessible).

There is also the prospect, not described in ODF 1.2, but explicitly accounted for in ODF 1.1 (and by the presence of optional protection attributes on the <text:section> element) that the content obtained from the source has been modifed by the producer.

What is not clear here or in ODF 1.1 is whether certain element content is acceptable from a source or must always be a result of modification of the sourced markup.  For example, what does it mean for change-marks to be obtained in the markup from a source?  a <text:section> element? Any <text:*-ref> elements?  Any bookmarks and index marks of various kinds?  Any already-used xml:id, etc.?

There seems to need to be considerable qualification involved in what is obtained from a source and what may have resulted from modification of source-obtained markup.
