Hello Ingo again,

after some discussion with others I was wondering whether you actually 
need something similar to "locNote", not for human readers, but for 
machine processing. That is something we had thought about for ITS 1.0 
already, btw. The definition would be the same as for "locNote", except 
that we have different names (e.g. "locInfo" instead of "locNote") and 
no "locInfoType" attribute. What do you think?
