Subject: RE: [xliff] Proposal for a <group> element

I agree that prescribing the number of groups can be risky. I think there could be an acceptable workflow where groups and elements within groups could be added or deleted. Enforcing a minimum number would impede this workflow.


Also, for attributes, I would add the fs (format-style) attribute.

Dear Rodolfo, although I tend to philosophically agree that a singleton does not constitute a group, I think that we cannot prevent authors of source content from creating hierarchies containing just one element at some levels.

IMHO, enforcing 2 child elements for group could be potentially harmful for intuitive representations.


This leads me to the idea that we could also consider empty groups, just a thought, not sure about this one..

Hi Yves,

The new <group> element should contain 2 or more <unit> or <group> elements. If a <group> contains just one of those element, it is not "grouping" anything.
