Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3386) ODF 1.2-1 5.4.1 "Ifa section is linked to another document"?

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3386?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21680#action_21680 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3386:

I finally dug into the schema to find out that there is a case that has been lost in the prose.  Please see OFFICE-3458.

This leaves open the following problems.  

 1. How can one name a section that is intended to be included by reference into other sections without having to also link the named section that is intended only as a source to something.  The current schema doesn't seem to permit that case.

 2. How does one deal with a <text:section> that has <text:section>s as its element children?  They are peculiar in that they will have the same names as they do in the source by which the top-level <text:sedion> is populated, etc.  That or embedded sections should not have names (certainly not xml:id values) and ideally they would always take their source from some other common section that is the end-source or provides the only link to an external source (and the others all source from it?)

So, in sourcing from another <text:section>, only the cached content travels (since otherwise there are duplicated linking elements), and that is probably worth a note.

> In Part 1 section 5.4.1, General, for <text:section> it is stated that 
> "Sections support two ways of linking to external content.  If a section is linked to another document, the link can be through one of the following ... ."
> But there appears to be no alternative to linking.  According to the schema, there must be exactly one of <text:section-source> or <office:dde-source> element as the first element child of every <text:section>.
> So what are the alternatives to "linked to another document"?  If there are other sources, what are they?  If there are <text:section> elements with no sources, how is that accomplished?
