Subject: RE: [xliff] Y22 - Translation proposals

Hi Yves,

Regarding the "ïd" attribute, I'll put a definition in the module's own section instead of using the general one.

For score/similarity/quality, we better use one attribute that indicates how similar the source text from the match is to the source text being translated. If we add a second attribute for qualifying the "quality" of the translation supplied by the generating agent, there will be lots of interpretation problems. 

We do need a list of values for the type of match. It would be great if you can supply one.
