Re: [all] call for concensus on Translation Provenance Agent (related to ISSUE-22)

Hi Dave, all,


"Two types of Translation Provenance Agent data categories are needed to

and the data category in general: wouldn't it be possible to have just two
attributes "agent" and "agentRef", and an additional one "type" with the
values "transAgent" or "revisionAgent"? In that they there are less
attributes and also less pointer attributes (see Yves' comment). It would
look like this I think:

<its:agentRule selector="/html/body/par" its:agentRef=""  type="transAgent"

<its:agentRule selector="/html/body/par" agent="John Doe, acme-CAT-v2.3"

Small editorial thing: your examples above said "its:domainRule", I changed
that to "agentRule".

Another note: in ITS global rules, we always used attributes without a
namespace, e.g. "agents" instead of "its:agents".
