Subject: RE: [xliff] The Segmentation feature


If a <unit> must always contain at least one <segment> element, then it is always "segmented". Tools are allowed to re-segment by splitting the existing segment. For example, you may have a <unit> with a <segment> containing of a paragraph with several sentences and that would be a fragment "segmented" at paragraph level that a user or process may or may not wish to re-segment at sentence level later.

The "segmented" attribute shouldn't be there. Also, the "canJoinSegments" or "canSplitSegments" attributes shouldn't be there. If re-segmenting a <unit> is allowed in one case, it should be allowed in all cases.

My 2 cents,
