Hi Felix,

I promised to send this during today's conference call. It combines
stuff from my original mail, and some of Felix' feedback. I am not sure
at all wrt. the correct wording for the last sentence.

Best regards,
Christian

In certain cases, it is necessary to attach ITS information to element
or attribute nodes (as opposed to text nodes). An information architect
may for example have to express that all images (which in his XML
vocabulary are referenced via an "src" attribute on an "img" element)
have to be localized (since they for example are only valid for a
certain culture). 

>From the point of view of ITS selection, this requirement poses a
challenge since the default selection of the ITS data categories and the
use of XPath do not cater for the attachment mechanism that is needed.
Furthermore, it requires specific thoughts related to precedence and
inheritance.

The ITS Working Group intend to discuss appropriate mechanisms.
