OK, <listApp/> is indeed spot on to encode something in STANDOFF.
Standoff is intellectually perfect, but raises issues for the processing of the encoded file. If I encode my edition in standoff, I won't be able to use 3rd party tools like the Versioning Machine, or the TEI Critical Apparatus Toolbox, etc. etc.
So I stand by my point b). In the example I gave in the beginning of this thread, the logical thing is to use <app/> at block-level. This way the user can still benefit from the generic tools and stylesheets provided for the parallel segmentation method.

am i being dense? don’t you have <listApp> for this circumstance?
