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.

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.
