Indeed. You are right Shaun.
That illuminates that solution then.

And that left the other one, which Felix's recommend.
So I guess my question is answered.

Thanks.

Wouldn't the first case not work because overriding is complete?
An ITS processor would see the local its:locNoteType attribute and be forced to use local only for the Localization Note data category. It doesn't matter that you matched and reapplied the local info in the global rule. The local attribute would cause the global rule to have no effect on that node.

Or am I misunderstanding overriding?
