Yes, that should be possible. Either when you expand the token of
"rPrChange", then you can do something like:

- turn flag on
- resolve children
- turn flag off

(DomainMapper.cxx:3039 has examples of that, the interop-grab-bag
reading of table styles use this technique)

or in case that doesn't work, you can still generate tokens when you
start or leave a context. If you search for tblStart/tblEnd in
model.xml, you'll find examples for this as well.

Right, that's quite possible.

Agreed, that makes sense.
