Thanks, Yves,

I think that there is increased interoperability with XLIFF only editors if
we refrain from defining itsm:LocNoteType
I believe that the three rules should be fine together, as long as we agree
what is the default for comment annotations with value.
I suggested it is alert, as the xliff <note> has deafult priority 1, but it
is pretty much arbitrary since ITS does not specify a default.
Also making the deafult description rather than alert could be better for
ordering purposes. And maybe more intuitive, to make extra effort to make
extra effort to make something an alert.
As it seems arbitrary I am really not sure what should the default be..

If the deafult for the third rule is agreed on and if no one objects I
would suggest to declare the Localization Note as fully covered by XLIFF
features and refrain from defining the itsm:LocNoteType
