Thank you for implementing this.

The i18n WG is satisfied with the original comment, however we would ask you
to add a note explaining the use of the colon in the *attribute values*,
such as claws:VVI (or choose a simpler example). Eg., is it expected that
role attributes will always look like this?  Is this drawing on a
pre-defined vocabulary?  etc.

homograph disambiguation
	Issue R103-36
	Proposed Classification: Feature Request 
	Resolution: Accept 
	We accept your proposal to add an attribute in the PLS as a way of
	uniquely matching homographs to pronunciations. 
	This will significantly change Section 5.5. We will propose new
	and we will welcome your review.

	The problem of homographs for TTS and homophones for ASR seems very
	It might be possible to alleviate the problem of homographs for TTS
	altering the SSML text, so that tokens are unique, but that would
	portability of the PLS, and, more importantly, cause problems for
	use of the same PLS for ASR.
	Would it not be possible to tag tokens in SSML so with 'variant ids'
	using attributes that could be matched to ids in the PLS as a way of
	uniquely matching homographs to pronunciations?
