Hi Yves,

I guess you may need this "overriding" in situations like the following:

You are would like to work with an external rules file. Unfortunately, the
"termRule" in that file does not suit your needs. Thus, you want to get
rid of it/cancel it.

I wonder if we really should provide an explicit cancellation mechanism and
shouldn't just tell people that in cases like this, the need to create a
separate "itsRules".

Betreff: Missing term="yes|no" attribute for <termRule>

Hi everyone,

I've noticed a possible over-simplification in <termRule>:

At some point after the WD of February we decided to remove the term="yes|no" attribute in the global terminology rule, thinking it
was not needed because it was always used as term="yes".

I think it was a mistake: One should be able to override a previous rule that says a given element is a term. Or am I missing

So, I would propose to re-instate the term="yes|no" in <termRule>.

I've entered a corresponding new bug in our issues list:
