Hi Nicolas, Hi List, 

citing from 'org-element.el':

,------------------------------------------------------------------
| Element containing other elements (and only elements) are called
| greater elements.  Concerned types are: `center-block', `drawer',
| `dynamic-block', `footnote-definition', `headline', `inlinetask',
| `item', `plain-list', `property-drawer', `quote-block', `section'
| and `special-block'.
`------------------------------------------------------------------

I find the 'containing other elements (and only elements)' confusing.
Don't some of these greater elements contain plain text as well as Org
objects?

cheers,
Thorsten

None of them contains _directly_ plain text or an object.

But they can contain an element that will, in turn, contain plain text
or an object. Note that there are only three such elements: paragraphs,
verse-blocks and table-rows (the latter being a special case as it can
only contain one object type: table-cells).
