>From MemoQ devlopers feedback:
Issue #1: "...following the inheritance of the rules can be difficult."

Comment for Yves:
"I'm not sure how more explicit we could explain the rules. But maybe this
refers to the difficulty to implement the inheritence rules rather than to
understand them."

Comment from Sebastian:
"Yes, following the inheritance of the rules can be difficult. The alternative,
of tagging every element, is surely unacceptable? I would suggest that for some
people a two-stage approach, with pass 1 being to resolve inheritance, and pass
1 being to do the work, may make the task more manageable."

Comment from Felix:
"I agree. Note that currently the draft is written in a "declarative way": We
define the different properties of ITS (selection, adding / pointing,
inherithance / precedence) . There is no description of the "procedures" how to
process ITS information. I would not rewrite the spec, but having such a
"process oriented" description in addition to the declarative current one might
be helpful."
