Something to get the ball rolling...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  = Scoping Mechanism =
  
+ === Levels ===
+ 
+ We identified four main location where ITS information could need to be specified.
+ 
+  * In an external file (e.g. to address general information for DTD-based document types)
+ 
+  * In schemes files (e.g. XML Schema and Relax-NG documents).
+ 
+  * "In a header" of a document instance, i.e. grouped somewhere at the top the document. (e.g. to address cases where ITS info has to be overwritten at a high level in a document (vs. at the element level).
+ 
+  * At the element level in a document instance. (e.g. to overwrite the ITS info for that element).
+ 
+ 
+ === Example with translatibility ===
+ 
+ To specify translability we currently defined the following:
+ 
+  * By default, all element are translatable and all attribute are not translatable.
+ 
+  * We have a {{{translate}}} attribute with a "yes|no" value to provide overwriting information. This can be used at the element level, and within schema files (e.g. when defining a XSD <element>).
+ 
+ {{{<para id="a1" its:translate="no"
+  >Do not translate this, <span its:translate="yes">except this part</span>, etc.</para>}}}
+ 
+ 
+ Several questions regarding the scope:
+ 
+  * The cases for "external file" and "in a header" level are not supported yet.
+ 
+  * What do we do for attributes? Should overwriting the don't-translate default for attribute with an ITS mechanism be even allowed?
