CommentsIds.xml and CommentsExtensible.xml are incorrect after re-saving document using .NET

MS Word (Version 2008 - Current Channel) update fixed comment relationship related bugs. The word adds two additional parts in document CommentsIds.xml and CommentsExtensible.xml.

I found that Aspose.words does not retain these two parts after simply opening and saving the document. To reproduce this issue, the document needs to be created in MS Word version 2008 13127.**

The sample package to reproduce this issue is attached.
Comment Parts (42.4 KB)

The package contains input.docx which has following parts. Refer image:
image.png (7.4 KB)

The output.docx is simple saved using Aspose.words: Refer image, the parts removed:
image.png (2.9 KB)

The expected behavior will be to retain this information after saving the document. Also consider following scenario while fixing this issue. If Content Control (CC) is bound to CustomXMLPart (CXP) and after UpdatePageLayout, and breaking the binding between CXP and CC, the relationship should be retained in document.

Please let me know if you need more information.
