Missing term="yes|no" attribute for <termRule>

Hi everyone,

I've noticed a possible over-simplification in <termRule>:

At some point after the WD of February we decided to remove the term="yes|no" attribute in the global terminology rule, thinking it
was not needed because it was always used as term="yes".

I think it was a mistake: One should be able to override a previous rule that says a given element is a term. Or am I missing
something?

So, I would propose to re-instate the term="yes|no" in <termRule>.

I've entered a corresponding new bug in our issues list:

Cheers,
