So could we then at
http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#datacategories-defaults-etc
in the "inheritance for element nodes" column point to
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/dom.html#the-translate-attribute
and explain what the HTML spec says (like in this thread)? The same for 
the "Translate" section. Or in summary: we wouldn't define our own HTML 
"translate" behaviour, but just refer to HTML. FYI, I had started 
discussing that in an offline thread with Yves too and now wanted to see 
what everybody here thinks.

Best,

Felix
