[ISSUE-34] Problem with mandatory attributes for quality

> Going further, I am not sure what it would mean, however, if a locQualityScore value were declared inside the context of another one. Under out normal precedence rules it would be as if the "outer" one did not exist, but it could be that someone it expressing partial scores (e.g., the overall score is 85, but this <div> has a score of 98 and that <div> is a 42. In this case it is not  like translate where the meaning is clear: a translate="yes" bit nested in a translate="no" bit completely overrides the translation="no" intent. But here the semantics are not so clear. Maybe it would solve it to state that the attribute does NOT apply to daughter elements. It's clear that semantically it does, but syntactically, we cannot see this as normal inheritance if the value from the whole cannot be seen as applying to the parts

And I see I contradicted myself. First I said that locQualityScore doesn't make sense going down to daughter elements, which is true in general, but at the same time it isn't true that if I have some structure like this:

<div id="1" its-loc-quality-score="80">
	<div id="2" its-loc-quality-score="60">Some bad <span id="A" its-loc-quality-type="misspelling" its-loc-quality-code="ABC:SPELLING">kontint</span></div>
	<div id="3" its-loc-quality-score="100">Some good content</div>

that there is no relation between the daughters and the parent.

Rather, there is a contributory (i.e., bottom-up) relationship at work here, not one of normal inheritance: the 80 applies to the whole, not to the constituent parts. The values for divs 2 and 3 contribute to the value of div 1.

And going down further, the same applies, the value of 60 applies only to the div as a whole, not to any part of it. If anything "Some bad" would have a score of 100 and "kontint" might have a value of 0.

On the other hand, it is not as if the value associated with divs 2 and 3 completely replace the value of div 1. If they did there would be no text to which the value from div 1 applies, which clearly is not the case: it applies to all of the text in div 1, taken as an intact whole.

The more I look at the score, the tougher it gets to unify with the other span-ish (as opposed to Spanish) attributes used to identify specific errors.

LocQualityProfile is maybe a bit easier to unify with them, but what I'd really like to see is something like this:

<html lang="en">
      <meta charset="utf-8" />
      <meta its-loc-quality-profile="XYZ:xyz.com/fake" />
      <meta its-loc-quality-profile="PQR:pqr.com/alsofake" />
      <title>Some junk in a document</title>
      <p class="segment" id="s0001"><span
          its-loc-quality-code="XYZ:wrong_name">Christian Bale</span>
      (<span its-loc-quality-type="numbers"
          its-loc-quality-comment="Should be 1867">2067</span>1934) conceived of an
      instrument that could transmit its sound from a power plant for hundreds of miles
      to listeners over telegraph wiring.</p>

Here the two quality profiles exist side by side and the prefix in loc-quality-code selects which one applies to which piece of content.

So the question is if we can do this using the ITS inheritance model and scoping model or not. If we cannot than we run into having to redeclare the profile for each and every place we want to use the category.
