According to the "Developer Guide" it is not possible to insert files into a presentation document through API (cf. chapter 10.3.3). It would be nice to add such a functionality in order to allow extensions to create combined presentation documents. (To give an example: Using the OpenCards (http://www.opencards.info) extension it would be great to combine different flashcard-sets (aka Impress-presentation-files) on-the-fly into large master-flashcardsets. This master-flashcardsets would be used to query the user all scheduled slides without opening all flashcard-presentations one after another) A related bug is probably http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=81035

There is com.sun.star.document.XDocumentInsertable; it's already supported by Writer, would be nice to have it in the other applications also. Perhaps we can arrange the implementation with the SFX team.

Forgot to mention: Writer has the interface at its model.

This is an enhancement.
