Now I am thinking that translation is really a process on a text, one of
possible many. Maybe some "protected" attribute would be more efficient to
signify that the text it marks is not allowed to be modified by whatever
process (including translation). Then translation tools can rely on this
attribute to decide whether to translate that span:

> <p lang="fr">
> <span title="[…]" protected="yes">Amnesty International</span> a dit dans un rapport…
> </p>

Or maybe it's all about having "translate" or not, then I prefer to have it,
but then "autocorrect" yes/no, "capitalize" yes/no, etc. should be added in
HTML6 :).

Sergei
