Subject: RE: [xliff] Proposal for Additional Segmentation Support Attributes

Title: Message
Some questions/observations:
[1] I didn't see any indication as to whether the new attributes are mandatory or optional on the <group> and <trans-unit> elements.
[2] As equivalent-translation is being set at the <trans-unit> level, this seems to impose the setting through all <alt-trans> elements. Is this a good idea?
[3] Where did you envisage the manipulation of the elements and attributes taking place? I don't see how they can realastically be set by the original filter, unless it has detailed linguistic knowledge or there's some information in the original file type that can be used. Does this mean that it's the responsibility of the XLIFF editor to change the DOM structure of the document? If so, I think this will need to be documented in the specification.
[4] A minor point, I know, but is it really necessary to have such long attribute names? As XLIFF documents are potentially being sent to translators, this would seem to be bloating the file size for someone who potentially is downloading with a modem :-)

Subject: [xliff] Proposal for Additional Segmentation Support Attributes

Hi all,
The segmentation subcommittee has voted unequivocally to put forward the proposal detailed below to the main XLIFF committee regarding two additional attributes related to segmentation in XLIFF files.
I would hereby like to request a formal review of the proposal by the XLIFF Committee for its inclusion in the XLIFF draft specification.
The following document explains the proposal and details the proposed changes to the XLIFF specification:
Best regards,
Magnus Martikainen
on behalf of the XLIFF Segmentation Subcommittee
