Agree.

I moved the XLIFF part out of
http://www.w3.org/International/its/wiki/ITS_Translate_Decorator
and added for whose who want to play with the Translate Decorator a 
download section, see
http://www.w3.org/International/its/wiki/ITS_Translate_Decorator#Download
including batch files (for usage with and without external rules). Maybe 
you can put the XLIFF part into a new place, with appropriate naming of 
the page etc.? I will send the Wiki source to you privately.

Agree. We can do that whenever you like.
