I had a look at 
http://norman.walsh.name/2005/10/21/dita#conref
and I am still wondering: what happens with translatability information if I
apply the conref mechanism of DITA?

Examples from DITA: compare
1) <note conref="#topic1/usefulnote"/>
versus
2) <note><p>...</p></note>
if I write a rule like
<its:translateRule its:select="//note" its:translate="no"/>
in ITS, the translatability information would inherit to the <p> element in the
case of 2), but not in the case of 1).
However, if I understand DITA correct, 1) and 2) should behave the same in
terms of translatability.
Am I missing something, or do we have to tell the DITA folks that they can't
apply ITS in a useful way if they use @conref?
