We support it in html and latex so we should not take this decision

I would like to see if someone who knows Libreoffice well will chime in.
I’m sure it’s possible somehow.

I have put Alan in the Cc as he has previously uncovered amazing options
in LO.  Alan: we want to be produce an odt document that mimics something
like the following in LO:

    [fn:1] Y[fn:2]
    [fn:2] Z

Worst case we can check the ODF specification which is sort of readable.

Otherwise, we’ll have to throw a warning.  (Error isn’t good here).


Together we'll stand, divided we'll fall
