Thanks for the reference. Unfortunately I don't feel that it is correct 
explanation of the reality.
I've implemented that in a little bit different way in OC but I think it's 
I'm inserting a fake FILLER instead of pushing the level for a variable.
01 A.
   05 B.
        10 C PIC X.
  04 D.
        05 E PIC X.

will be converted to
01 A.
  04 FILLER.
   05 B.
        10 C PIC X.
  04 D.
        05 E PIC X.

IBM explanation is that D will go to the same level as B. But they've left out 
of discussion what will happen to E in this case.

For documentation on how IBM handles "non-Standard" level numbers, see:

and look at the section beginning,

"You can also define groups with subordinate items that have different
level-numbers for the same level in the hierarchy."
