+ At times, it may be useful or necessary to extend the set of information available for localization purposes beyond that provided by the ITS. Ideally, this supplementary information is drawn from a formalized or even standardized XML vocabulary (ie. a schema exists, and the schema has been accepted by a standards body like OASIS).
+ 
+ Ideally, the supplementary information can come in any of the following disguises:
+ 
+  * element
+  * attribute
+  * attribute value
+ 
+ Adding elements and attributes could use the XML namespace mechanisms.
+ Adding attribute values could be based on a naming conventions (by a "x-" prefix (e.g. <span context-type='x-for-engineers'>)).
+ 
+ See the extensibility provisions in XLIFF [http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/xliff/documents/cs-xliff-core-1.1-20031031.htm#Struct_Extension].
