(In reply to comment #42)
Agree with keeping it simple. Do not overload the notranslate attribute with
indicating source and target, that can happen elsewhere, and is optional.

(In reply to comment #39)
>'translate', the transitive verb, is asymmetric with respect to the source and
>target documents -- it only applies properly to the source version.
No. Applies everywhere. notranslate maintains the original language regardless
of translation. translate allows this element to be translated. The status of
being an "original" or not is irrelevant.

>What should the value of this attribute be in the translated versions?
The same.
