not sure if anybody here is interested in this much incoherent rambling
:)  but feel free to put it up on the AOO wiki and send a link here if
you like.

hmmm... same here.

- the list of elements in first paragraph is a goal statement, not an
implementation status

- "Deletion while change tracking is activated:" - i don't remember what
actually happens here

- "If another entity has the same metadata reference, the to be pasted
entity will lose its metadata reference and thus has no metadata any more."

the implementation is actually slightly more clever than this: you can
copy something, paste it, the inserted copy appears to have no xml:id;
now delete the source and the inserted copy takes over the xml:id the
source had.  (the mechanism for that was required for Writer's insane
Undo implementation anyway...)

- "Embedded Objects" - i don't remember what actually happens with these

other than that it looks accurate as far as i can remember.
