This basically comes down to: who is Lboccia in the wiki ?

This looks like another addition by "Lboccia" - it'd be good to unwind
who that is. They seem to have added a number of features that don't
exist (along with some that do). I suspect some confusion as to the role
of the page: which is clearly not "speaking features into being" ;-)

No - but it'd be great if you're on it :-) hopefully the code pointers
are helpful there.
Wrt. cleaning up the 3.5 features page I did some more dung-out:
* Blocks gallery:
:Each user could create a block from a group of objects and to share it
with other users through the DocumentFoundation server. In such a way,
there will be the possibility to have a big online clipart gallery
directly available in Libreoffice. Blocks will be collected in galleries
and they can be simply inserted in other designs.
Doesn't exist either AFAICS, and is clearly highly aspirational.
The "document comparison" stuff looks like a (nice) UI mockup as well,
that shouldn't be there (already removed).
Other examples are:
Are these two accurate:
Or just wish-list items ? :-)
So - I think there was just some confusion about the function of the
page (sadly). I've clarified the rubric at the top to make it clearer (I
hope): that it refers to new features that really exist already.
Hopefully the text is also improved so it reflects reality again. It is
sad however to have pointed people at this page and not noticed this
inaccuracy for a while; still - our official release notes should be
accurate now, and there are more features missing from that page.
