Subject: RE: [xliff] Implementing extensions

Hi Rodolfo, all,


A very good list!

I agree with all, with some reservations for #6 and #7.


For #6: I just wonder if it shouldn’t be “extensions SHOULD be public and documented” (more explanations on that on the two other emails I just posted)


For #7: I have no idea if anything IPR-related rules need to be specified. It’s good to bring up that topic though.

Some points to keep in mind regarding extensibility:

  1. It must be safe to ignore custom extensions while processing an XLIFF file;
  2. Extension points should not be allowed in critical elements, like <source> or <target>;
  3. Extensions must not be used instead of XLIFF standard features;
  4. A tool that generates XLIFF files with custom extensions must be able to accept an XLIFF file processed with other tool as long as the received file is valid XLIFF;
  5. A tool that uses custom extensions should not expect that other tools update custom data while processing an XLIFF file;
  6. XML schemes that define custom extensions must be public and documented;
  7. Any custom extension used in an XLIFF file must be published under the same IP terms the XLIFF standard is published and be freely redistributable;
  8. Custom extensions are subject to standard rules for XML handling and the recommendations regarding XML usage included in the XLIFF specification.


Best regards,
