Hi Maciej,

You are correct in that both proposals are much more similar now.
We did indeed try to find a compromise solution in the last meeting,
but agreed to disagree at this stage.

I've still got a TODO to improve the TranscriptURL proposal with some
language that compares it to the IDREFs proposal with
advantages/disadvantages. I, however, have to attend to my wedding
party tomorrow, so will not get to it before next week (and even then
will take some time out from our honeymoon).  You can expect something
before the end of the week.

Cheers,
Silvia.

However, neither provides direct rationale for why its form of the transcript attribute is different from the others. They focus more on why transcript support is useful at all, and on comparing to proposals no longer on the table.
