If the source file for the generated TMX is an XLIFF file, then "xliff"
should be used. 

The original XLIFF could be created from any content. TMX should not
care about that.

XLIFF TC could adopt the values defined in TMX if compatibility is
desired. We can't wait another year until XLIFF defines its own values.
