OK. I'm think I'm with you now.

A) its:selector="//p[@trans='false']" applies only to the selected nodes, not to their children (except by inheritence if they don't
have any other rules applied to them)

B) when we need to overwrite the children we have to specify it explicitely in the selector: its:selector="//p[@trans='false']//*".

So we do indeed have already a way to "overwrite or not all previous rules". [I was lost because I thought we were interpreting
//text[@localize='no'] as //text[@localize='no']/descendant-or-self::*, now we have establish we do not, everything makes sense

Things are logical again, but I'm still not sure being able to "overwrite or not all previous rules" resolve all cases. I'll try to
come up with test cases.
