Subject: XLIFF 2.0 Sanity Check: Module owners to spedicify removal PRs, was Re: [xliff] 1.2 to 2.0 Gaps and Proposals

@All module owners (i.e. feature owners, whose feature was specified as a module), as part of the spec sanity check, please review "your" module PRs.
In particular, make sure that your module PRs state how your module can be introduced, updated AND deleted.

@Yves, if a module spec does not specify how it (its elements, attributes, values) can be removed, it is not an issue of the general PRs but of that very module. It would be lame to leave this to SHOULD and tribal knowledge rather than explicit definitions and PRs

Cheers and weekend

And on that note David: Following that logic, since none of the modules has currently any PR stating a tool implementing the module can remove the element, technically, once added a module element cannot be removed ...ever. Even by the tool that placed it there.

That's the problem with "MUST preserve" at the default level: It forces you to define module-specific PRs where you can't possibly think about everything. That results in default PRs that are simply impossible to enforce.

But it's ok, I'm past spending time discussing it.
Have a good week-end,
