Hi Yves and all,
 
Question related to 
 
> what if there are several <rules> elements in the document? (it's not

Do we really want to allow for this? Don't we open a can of worms since
for example we would need to say
sth. about possible contradictions between statements in different
"rules". Think for example of the case
where rule set 1 specifies all "p" to be translated whereas rule set 2
specifies all "p" as _not_ to be
translated.
 
Best regards,
Christian

	Hi Christian, Felix, Diane, 

	A follow up on the version topic. We didn't thought about some
cases that makes our current consensus a bit arguable: what if there are
several <rules> elements in the document? (it's not forbidden, and may
be caused by tools automatically inserting <rules>).

	Currently we have: 

	#1: If there is only ITS local markup in the document, the
its:version goes in the root element of the document. 

	#2: If there is a <rules> element (with or without additional
local markup), the its:version goes in the <rules> element, not in the
root of the document.

	Issues: 

	--> If 'somehow' a document has an its:version both in the root
of the document and in the <rules> element, I assume the one in the root
element should be ignored (but things would change if later we decide to
allow multiple verisons)

	--> If you have two or more <rules> elements, the its:version in
the first <rules> should prevail? Or each version prevails for its
<rules>? And which one applies the the local markup?


	I realize that these cases are related to the "do we allows ITS
of different versions to be processed together" discussion that we said
was premature, but it seems very difficult to apply our current
consensus to those two issues without knowing the answer to the
question.

	I'm a bit concern that all this seems quite confusing compare to
just have one its:version in the root element in all cases... (which
also makes the "do we allows ITS of different versions to be processed
together" question much easier to resolve by restricting the
possibilities of different versions to one per document at most).

	Any comment?
