Hello all,

In working on the requirements doc (http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/wiki/Requirements), it is apparent that we have a number of quality metadata categories of unclear scope and overlap. The biggest division is that we have separate categories for source (e.g., http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/wiki/Requirements#sourceQAError) and target (e.g., http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/wiki/Requirements#quality_level). While there is a certain logic to this (since metrics are likely to differ for them), I wonder if it makes sense overall, or if source and target should be unified into one model. I think that this position is logically better, assuming that the same data model can be applied to both. Since the current proposal for source QA items is a meta-model rather than a concrete model, I would think that it could apply to both.

My proposal then is to unify these into one set that applies to both source and target, but before doing so, I'd like to open it up for discussion about any side-effects I may not have seen. So, any thoughts?

Best,

Arle
