The proposed resolution for this is to have a termInfoPointer attribute in the
<termRule> element.

The termInfoPointer attribute value is an XPath expression relative to the
node(s) selected by the selector attribute of the <termRule> element. That
expression points to the node(s) where the data can be found. XPath 1.0 and its
successor have an id() function that allows to select nodes specifying their

So, given the example below:

<p>Text of the first <termref def="myID">paragraph</termref>.</p>
<p id="myID">A paragraph is a group of sentences.</p>

To express that the def attribute of <termref> points to the definition of the
term, we could use the following rule:

<its:termRule selector="//termref" termInfoPointer="id(@def)"/>
