Subject: RE: [xliff] XLIFF 2.0 Core

Hi Rodolfo,

Using a "unit > segment > language" structure looks ok to me. It is one of the two representations I was thinking about.

It does have the advantage to make the segment id un-necessary. Simpler is better.
We may have to think a bit about tools that allow cross-aligned segments, but that can possibly be resolved with an optional id.

The scenario you are describing is a good use case and I agree with the example of process: Segmentation change is one of the modifications the merging tool should be able to handle.

I also concur that clear definitions of the different parts are important.

So, yes Rodolfo, we basically agree.
