Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] acronyms, abbreviations, definitions

Hello Dave,

thank you for the reassuring feedback :)

After pondering this a bit, I do understand  why you'd qualify the 
phrase with an attribute:
it's not just any old phrase, but a phrase that serves a specific 
function, i.e. to expand the acronym/abbreviation.

However, I do not understand why mark it with a "condition"? It would 
seem more logical to me to attribute it a "role", no?

Thanks for submitting this already!
I will try my luck in requesting the same for <abbrev> too, since the 
improvement in accessibility can be considerable in screen reader output 
for both.
