5.4.1 <text:section> - Are DDE links to external data only or between sections?

                 Key: OFFICE-3388
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3388
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Text
    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05
            Reporter: Patrick Durusau
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06

ODF 1.1 says for sections:  "If sections are linked via DDE, their linking information is represented by <office:dde-source> elements." Which implies that intra-document sections can be linked via DDE, whereas the current language in ODF 1.2 (5.4.1) rather explicitly uses DDE for external data sources. (Sections are wholly described in terms of external content.)

I am not certain if any applications used DDE to link sections or not so cannot offer an opinion on the current language and existing applications. 

I suspect the distinction was meant to be to use <text:section-source> for internal resources but that is supposition on my part. 

That is:

1) External - DDE
2) Internal - text:section-source
