Maybe Yves will answer this later differently, but my understanding is  
that this is the fulfillment of the requirement described by Richard at  
http://people.w3.org/rishida/localizable-dtds/#inline-elements , in  

"There should be a means of indicating whether an element is equivalent or  
not to a unit that will be used for automated translation processing. Some  
elements may contain other elements which are translation units in their  
own right."

Hope that helps. Regards, Felix.
