Subject: RE: [xliff] Some Questions on the white paper

Here is my two cents:

I don't think so.
(but it would be an advantage for the editor to implement this).

I guess the tool would check if any <alt-trans> entry exist and if not
create one with the original proposed translation.
There is currently no requirements for the filters to even create the
<target> entry, so it would be hard to get them to produce a mandatory
<alt-trans> too.
