        Revert "fdo#74743 avoid infinite loop when gathering "svg" element styles"
        This reverts commit 3b7472b284131c09d91b69f26d5d26d54648f939.
        Commit 0879a639bc7c734f0847f74b965809f9107b3195 didn't
        revert all changes, so we ran into problems getting the
        css style correctly.

    ww8import create a pagedesc if continuous section changes margins (bnc#875383)
    This is similar to what writerfilter does. MSWord can have one page with several
    different margins, which are saved using continuous sections, which causes all
    kinds of trouble, because either we treat them as Writer sections, which means
    we lose some of the data, or we treat them as Writer page styles, which causes
    spurious page breaks if in the wrong place. Either option has its problems, but
    here it seems slightly better to go for keeping the data and hoping the page
    break will be in a place where a break will be anyway.

Looks like duplicate of Bug 86468, same problem, same version.
Lubos added as CC in both bugs, but he doesn't seem to respond.
