I think I found an issues from writing the 

"The text:style-name attribute specifies character family styles."

However, the attribute text:style-name on <text:index-title> says:

"The text:style-name attribute specifies section family styles."

Contrary to the specification, LibreOffice uses a paragraph style in text:index-
title-template/@text:style-name. It does use a section style for text:index-
title/@text:style-name. It makes sense that the style family for text:index-
title-template/@text:style-name is at least paragraph.

LO uses the style from on a paragraph in <text:index-title>. This seems 

So you see that careful reading of this new file and using it on existing files 
can lead to interesting finds. Please have a look through the file if you want 
and/or test it. There are still quite a number of id/ref pairs that can be 

We should discuss if we want to make this list of ids/refs informative or 
normative. Like with the RNG schema, the contents of the file could be use to 
create parts of the specification.
