12, 13, 15, 20, 21 and 27 seem to all be variations on a common concern:  ODF is a standard for a document format.  It is not a standard for a word processor or other editor, beyond some formatting and layout guidance.  In particular we have not defined the permissible editing operations for an editor.  I think this is the key question.
I agree this is a key question, and I think you mean that in a document format it is not appropriate to define the editing operations... but this is a contentious issue I believe (understandably). Are we trying to track editing operations or changes to the document (see 35)?
