Yes, that is my understanding. If Christian is not on the list, then we need to write to him for details. I was just passing on his comment, so I'm not able to answer more questions.

E.g., Christian said he would like to be able to point to a graphic or sound file as a reference for a term. In addition, the XLIFF mrk (type=term) allows for embedding definitions, something currently not allowable with its:term. Making this change would help draw us closer closer to what XLIFF allows and let us add some sophistication to the terminology model.
