I don't think we can say that. We must find a way to support the <notrans> or trans='false' cases. And I'm guessing that that
solution (whatever it will be) will be applicable to solve both dita:translate and <notrans>. I'd rather see both aspects resolved
with a single solution, if it's possible.

At least we have reach one conclusion for now: something like <mapMarkup> can't be that solution.
