Subject: RE: [xliff-comment] Resource Data Module <source> and <target> elements need a unique name

Perhaps you are right. I only have a gut feeling that <xlf:souce> and <xlf:target> storing text and inline elements, and having a set of attributes; vs. <res:source> and <res:target> being empty, and having a different set of attributes; . . . is confusing.

In my experience people sometimes have a difficult time grasping namespaces. I've known smart people to get confused when this


is the same as

<source xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:2.0">, 
<source xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:resourcedata:2.0">

As I said, this is a gut feeling, but I cannot point to another standard or case that shows this.

Yves, do you have examples of where relying on local names enables people to work in confusing ways? 

Maybe others have opinions?

As I said, mine is not a strong opinion, just a gut feel.

My 2 cents: Namespaces are there to avoid such confusion. Allowing people to rely on local names is, in my opinion, not good: It
just enable people to work in confusing ways.
