Thanks Declan,

I will try to draw up the data model for this item today. For the issue of lists, my assumption is that one would simply declare multiple instances of the data category. The scope of the element would be either the parent element (for ones declared within an element) or global (if declared, e.g., in the <head> element of an HTML5 file), but I can see some issues regarding overrides, etc., that we'd need to resolve.

> I'd support the idea of having a "languageResource" category. In terms of format I understand the need for standardisation here, but we need to be aware that it is far more common for people to use TMX,XLIFF,TBX etc. rather than a MIME type, so having the "other" option should cover this.
