Of course the the opposite is also true. It is almost as easy to change
un-numbered divs into numbers divs.

I write mine by hand quite often (but of course generate many other
forms) and yes, do use oXygen with all its little ease-of-use additions.

Agreed. Of course if someone could happen to have already produced the
ODD which adds back in numbered divs (which is why I always liked the
phantom-class solution, since that makes it stunningly easy) and have it
ready at hand as soon as someone complains, then that could be a useful
public relations exercise.
However, I think it should add this only to 'full' TEI, not TEI-Lite.
Moderate FAND supporter.
