Subject: RE: [xliff] We cannot remove *all* extensibility and support 1.4

Hi Andrzej,

Hmmm. An interesting approach. Thanks for sharing.

I like your approach, but I still think in order to support "1.4 Allow XML content in <internal-file> element" we will need extensibility in the <internal-file> element.


ps. looking forward to seeing you in La Jolla!

Hi Bryan,

A very viable alternative to namespace for embedding a skeleton file is to zip and base64 encode it, thereby removing all potential problems. We have been doing that since the outset for XLIFF 1.2.

I've been pondering the issue we discussed regarding eliminating extensibility from XLIFF 2.0 vs. greatly reducing extensibility (in order to better enable interoperability and discourage custom solutions).

I've come to the conclusion that we cannot completely remove extensibility, and still support our approved feature, "1.4 Allow XML content in <internal-file> element" (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xliff/XLIFF2.0/FeatureTracking#XLIFF2.0.2BAC8-Feature.2BAC8-InternalFileWithXMLContent.AllowXMLcontentin.3Cinternal-file.3Eelement ).

In an email from a long time ago, I mocked up a variety of ways to support this feature (http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xliff/200806/msg00005.html ). All of these require namespacing the included XML. I might be overlooking something, but I think if the intent is to embed the source skeleton file, those XML elements (and attributes) will need to be namespaced in.
