      Adapt last paragraph before the note of 5.4 text:section- 5.4.1 General to:

      A section that links to external content should contain a full representation of the external content that appears in the section.

      Consumers may process links to external content to update the external content that appears in a section.

      Adapt last paragraph before the note of 5.4 text:section- 5.4.1 General to: A section that links to external content should contain a full representation of the external content that appears in the section. Consumers may process links to external content to update the external content that appears in a section.

      Description

      Now reads:

      "A section that links to external content contains a full representation of the data, so that consumers need to understand the linking information only if they wish to update the contents of the section."

      Two questions:

      1) Should the first clause say "A section that links to external content shall/should/may/can contain a full representation of the external content that appears in the section."

      ???

      2) Should the second clause read (as a separate sentence): "Consumers may/can process links to external content to update the external content that appears in a section."

      ???

      Noting that neither consumers nor producers "understand" anything. They apply rules we define. Understanding is not required.
