Is it still true that Division 00 items are called "documents" and Division 01 through 49 items are called "sections"?

The issue is that some, perhaps most, documents in Division 00 are 1) not issued under the design professional's seal and 2) are not 'specifications' as governed by registration statutes. This is an important legal distinction. My firm refers to items in Div 00 as 'Document xx xx xx' and the TOC clearly identifies 'Sections' in Divisions 01 and following as specifications to clarify this distinction that was inherent in MF95.

I concur with Louis. This is what we do as well. And some of these are forms, or things like table of contents. Those are not specification "sections", they are documents.

Also, Division 01 follows SectionFormat - or should I say SectionFormat covers Division 01 - and Division 00 does not.
Anyone who has ever dealt with the Owner's world in Division 00 knows there is never a "DocumentFormat".
