mm .. not sure if we need that in the ITS2 spec, but rather in a best 
practice document: there are many existing (XML) vocabularies that have 
existing similar or identical purposes which you may want to fulfil with 
ITS markup or native markup, see e.g. the DITA "translate" or 
terminology markup. Putting guidance here would make the ITS2 spec 
rather long. Rather I'd put energy in an update of XML i18n BP
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/NOTE-xml-i18n-bp-20080213/
to cover both XML and HTML.

Best,

Felix
