for a user of ITS, it would be more difficult in the sense that each time you
want to express s.t. about a specific, singular attribute, you would need an
<its:documentRule> element with at least two attributes: the data category
attribute and the selector attribute. But the attributes would be necessary in
the in situ application as well. And it would be no problem to express s.t.
about attributes *in general* dislocated:
<its:documentRule its:translate="yes" its:translateSelector="//img/@alt"/>
for an ITS processor, I think it would make things slightly easier to have no in
situ selector attributes, and the expressive power of selection would be the same.
