The <refbodydiv> element is similar to the <bodydiv> element in that it provides an informal container for content that may be grouped within a reference. Reference topics place many restrictions on their content compared to generic topics; the <refbodydiv> element maintains these restrictions by only allowing elements that are already available within the body of a reference. There are no additional semantics attached to the <refbodydiv> element; it is purely a grouping element provided to help organize content.
The <refbodydiv> element may nest itself, which means that it may be used by specializers to create structured information within a specialized reference topic. Another common use case for the <refbodydiv> element is to group a sequence of related elements for reuse, so that another topic may reference the entire set with a single conref attribute.
Note: These models represent only the default document types distributed by OASIS. Actual content models will differ with each new document type.
