Re: Possible wording for acknowledged but yet uncovered requirement related to non-textual content

I like this. Christians text sounds like a requirement, which fits good
into the requirements document. Sebastians text is a clarification about
what we can't achieve in the moment, which fits in the tagset document.

There is only one drawback about the example:

<p xmlns:its="http://www.w3.org/2005/11/its">As you can see in
    <img src="instructions.jpg" its:translate="yes"/>,
    the truth is not always out there.</p>

The default selection says that local its:translate attributes talk
about "Textual content of element, including content of child elements,
but excluding attributes", see
http://www.w3.org/TR/its/#selection-defaults-etc
So the its:translate attribute in the example doesn't attach ITS
translatability information to the @src attribute.

An solution would be a global rule:

<its:rules><its:translateRule translate="yes"
selector="//p/img/@src"/></its:rules> ...
<p xmlns:its="http://www.w3.org/2005/11/its">As you can see in
    <img src="instructions.jpg" its:translate="yes"/>,
    the truth is not always out there.</p>

Everybody fine with that? If nobody disagrees, I would change the example.
