Hi Arle,
I agree, leaving this to Linport and ISO was the broad intent of that 
transParam proposal - they are the right people to do this.

Further, I agree a dumb pointer to an external doc would be a reasonable 
alternative to name-value pairs - what do the LSP and client people 
think? Is this something people would be interested in implementing?

As with the earlier transParam suggestion, this is soft on conformance, 
but a bit more specific in referring to Linport/ISO to solve this. But 
like the standoff provenance and PROV WG discussion, the maturity of 
this external work is a factor. Could you say a bit more about this 
normative status you mention? Can the documents be made available to the WG?

I guess it would look like

<its:rules
   xmlns:its="http://www.w3.org/2005/11/its"    version="2.0">
  <its:transParam selector="/html/body" transParamRef="/http://www.ex.com/transParam.txt"//>
</its:rules>

cheers,
Dave
