Thanks for the summary Sebastian.
Now it's very clear to me.

Yes, if we have mapping we need this extra precedence rule and I agree that it would make sense to have the ITS attribute or element
to win.

Cheers,

This is very sinple. It says

************
proposal-07: add to the precedence rules a rule for "Selections inherited from other local usages of ITS markup"
************

If we support mapping of existing attributes to data categories, we have to decide what happens if an ITS attribute and a mapped
attribute are both supplied. So if we did have a translate mapping, we may encounter:

 <p translate="yes" its:translate="no">

and we need to know which is which.

I suggest that specific ITS attributes on an element have the highest precedence. So the example above would get the "no"
value for translate.
