No, only HTML5 defines application specific rules. For all other
languages default is simple -- attributes are not translateable, and
elements are translateable. But please note that ITS is not only about
translateablity, and that non-element selectors should extend selectors
to be more generic selection/query language, not only to cater for some
ITS use-cases.
