Subject: [xliff] 1.1 proposal

This is a 1.1 proposal by Oracle - and is in fact the work of Mat Lovatt.

Problem 1 :  Need a closed list of attributes that are controlled by the reformat attribute 
Problem 2 :  Need fine grained control over individual members of this list 
Problem 3 :  If Non Standard attributes are represented by props, need a mechanism for specifying which attributes may be modified
Proposal 1
 In the XLIFF 1.0 spec, the reformat attribute is used to indicate that all UI attributes may or may not be modified.
 The spec mentions font, size, etc.
 The specific attributes are not detailed.
 A closed list of attributes controlled by the Reformat attribute will remove ambiguity 
Proposal 2
 A reformat element will be used as an alternative to the reformat attribute
 If specified, all attributes listed within the element may be modified in the trans-unit/bin-unit.
 All attributes not within the element may not be modified
 All attributes in the element will have empty or default values.
 The value of the attribute is ignored. Its presence is used to validate and control changes to the 'Real' attribute
 The trans-unit/bin-unit may specify a reformat attribute, or a reformat element, but not both 
Mtg:  Yes (Proposal 1 and 2) to the concept Needs further clarification. Mat to formulate proposal to do this.  
Proposal 3
 If Non XLIFF standard UI attributes are specified using props, a reformat attribute within the prop-group will specify that all attributes
within the prop-group may or may not be modified.
 This is primarily of use for end users, that use these values in proprietary environments. 
  Mtg: Discussion needs to wait until we discuss the prop-group
