Is this necessary only for the enumerated values? So, if we give up
translateMap and dirMap, do we still need this? Maybe yes ... for cases like

<p>You need a new <qterm its:termRef="someUri"
ref="anotherUri">motherboard</qterm>.</p>

To be able to say "@its:termRef wins, compared to @ref".

I would propose the same precedence order as Sebastian stated.
