Operation "Deletion of a paragraph"
The deletion of a paragraph from a document means the removal of a paragraph element [A] inclusive attributes, content and sub elements from the document. According [A] a paragraph element is an ODF <text:p> element or an ODF <text:h> element.
A paragraph element can be removed from various areas of a document:
- From the main content of a document 
- From the page header respectively page footer of a document's page style
- ... 
The following information is needed to represent such a change to a document:
- The change itself - XML element representing a deletion of an ODF component 
- Type of the ODF component which is subject of the change
- Identification/Position of the ODF component which is subject of the change
The change for an deletion of an ODF component is represented by change tracking element <change:deletion> .
The type of the ODF component is specified by change tracking attribute change:component  with value "paragraph" .
The position of the ODF component is specified by change tracking attributes change:area and change:pos . Attribute change:area specifies the area in which the change has occurred. Attributes change:pos specifies the path to the ODF component inside the specified area. The path value identifies the ODF component by giving the child numbers of ODF components tree hierarchy inside the area .
change:component, change:area and change:pos are attributes of change tracking element <change:deletion>.
Inside an ODF document this operation is used to change-track the insertion of a paragraph to the document. To change-track the insertion of a paragraph into the document an operation "Deletion of a paragraph" is stored in the change track stack .
 We should assure that the readers know what is meant by "main content of a document" - content of ODF element <office:body>. May be it makes sense to define it somewhere.
-  This list needs to be completed. We also need to provide the information in which ODF file - content.xml or styles.xml - each area is located in.
-  The ODF components which can be subject of a change need to be defined.
 "<change:deletion>" is a working name.
-  "change:component" is a working name.
-  Value "paragraph" is a working value.
-  "change:area" and "change:pos" are working names.
 A better definition for path is needed.
-  "change track stack" is a working name for the stack of tracked changes.
- [A] see ODF 1.2, 5.1.1 for the definition of "paragraph element".
