Subject: RE: [xliff] Metadata extensibility with metaHolder

Hi Bryan,

No, my intent was to show how Kevin's user data could be coded in a custom namespace (and compare that to metaHolder).

<unit id='1'>
  <source>Some text</source>
  <ms:winLocMetadata xmlns:ms="kevinWinLocNamespace">
   <ms:reviewComments path="data/comments" provider="MicrosoftLocABC">comments.csv</ms:reviewComments>
   <ms:regex key="rule001" provider="MicrosoftLocABC">m/(\d+)/)</ms:regex>
   <ms:foo provider="MicrosoftLocABC">bar</ms:foo>
   <ms:age provider="MicrosoftLocABC">35</ms:age>
   <ms:locBusinessData type="Microsoft-WinLoc:locData" provider="MicrosoftLocABC">en-GB;string;Hello;1437</ms:locBusinessData>

No XLIFF element/attribute is involved inside <ms:winLocMetadata>.

Yes, that was my intent.

Indeed, and that's the whole point of having a custom namespace: Kevin would have complete control of the elements and attributes in his extension. That's not "worst" that's "much better".

(And you don't want to use "ms:path", inside <ms:reviewComments> attributes without prefix are in the scope of the "ms" namespace).

I hope that clarify the example.
