| 6.3.4<text:note-body>
| The <text:note-body> element contains the content of a note. It does not

LibreOffice doesn't support notes inside notes.  So for all practical
purposes, nested footnotes cannot be supported with ODT export (in both
the legacy and in-the-works experimental version).

If one intends to export his Org file to ODT, then nested footnote
construction should be avoided like plague.
