The <bodydiv> element can nest itself, which means that it can be used as a specialization base to create structured information within a body. Another common use case for the <bodydiv> element is to group a sequence of related elements for reuse, so that another topic can reference the entire set with a single @conref attribute.
Because the <bodydiv> element allows <section>, it cannot be used within <section> elements. Use the <div> element to group content that might occur in both topic bodies and sections.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
