- Remark: Should overwriting the don't-translate default for attribute with an ITS mechanism be even allowed?
+ However, problems may arise if full XPath (rather than only a subset) is permitted. Example: An XPath expression 'pointing' to an elements anchestors. Thus, one could consider an approach for restricted XPath.
  
+ One positive aspect about XPath is of course the knowledge which people already have about it, and the libaries and other utilities which already are available for it.
