Thanks for the notes Felix.
Here are some thoughts:

No more than in <its:locInfo> :) But I'm not opposed to it: I was just wondering if there was some strong technical reason to have
the text there vs in the rule element itself. Using <its:locInfo> is fine with me.

Isn't the "Ruby" a single data category that is realized by encompssing whatever elements/attributes are needed? If so, why are you
now using two distinct rule elements for it? So far we have a one-to-one match between a rule and a data category. Also we would
potentially need more 'mapping' info for ruby (e.g. for <rp>).

Yes, there is quite a bit of a difference between 'pointing to a content' and 'mapping'.
I have nothing against having these "mappings" for these cases. I was only concerned with having two different way to handle things
like translatabbility.
