There is a difference between the DITA and HTML5: the latter is described in the specification. For example we do state that 'lang' should be used as local markup for Language Information, or that 'id' should be used for Id Value.

We kind of say something about "<meta keywords>" and "<meta dcterms.subject>" for Domain, but without making it as strong as 'lang' or 'id'.

We do have an example that show translate in HTML (http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-its20-20121206/examples/html5/EX-translate-html5-local-1.html) but we do not state anywhere (as far as I can see) that HTML's translate must be treated as its:translate (despite the example implying it and even having a test case for it (translate2html.html)).

It does seems that we have a number of ITS/HTML5 mapping that are treated differently and sometime enforced, sometime recommended, sometime not mentioned.

cheers,
