The in-line markup would override the markup in the structural part (since the structural part is always parent of the inline part).

For example a translate='no' in the <unit> can be overridden with a <mrk id='1' translate='yes'> inside the content>.

I think now, with the target Pointer data category, one could process an XLIFF document with a pure ITS-aware processor, we would just have to define the rules for XLIFF. So I think an XLIFF document could be treated like any other XML+ITS document. But XLIFF processor would probably read the ITS-in-XLIFF markup directly rather than rely an ITS processor, as it's easier.
