Oh, I see trgLang in the optional list now.
I think it doesn't really matter: as David said the OPTIONAL stated near the names doesn't mean much anyway: it's all about the constraints and PRs.
>>- " 17. Which XLIFF version does your tool support?" :

"XLIFF 2.0 modules support"? or something like that.
Input for the future:
It's too late to change now, but maybe next time we do a survey for 2.x it could be better to list the constraints and PRs rather than the elements and attributes. For this time around there are too many (about 125 just for the Core) to change.
For 2.x we also may want to make sure they are display in some very visible way in the specs (colored or in a frame, etc. and possibly labeled per type of agents) having them with a heading 'Constraints' and 'Processing Requirements' helps, but they are still easy to miss.
