Hi Yves,
To clarify,
1) by "formats that can’t use an ITS attribute" you mean format that 
can't use ITS attribute in certain places, if they can't use them at all 
its pointers don't help

2) is there a whole class of such formats (can XML schema validation per 
say prevent this?) or is this something particular to XLIFF 2.0? If the 
latter, then this adds urgency to addressing the ITS mapping to resolve 
this pointer issue right?
