That's an interesting idea, but its not clear to me that its:terminology 
prohibits refering to non-textual definitions in ITS1.0?

Christian, perhaps you could clarify why this is the case?
cheers,

E.g., Christian said he would like to be able to point to a graphic or sound file as a reference for a term. In addition, the XLIFF mrk (type=term) allows for embedding definitions, something currently not allowable with its:term. Making this change would help draw us closer closer to what XLIFF allows and let us add some sophistication to the terminology model.
