So we would add the defaults in the specifications for Element Within Text, (since Language Information and Id Value are already there), and just have a note stating why no defaults are defined for Translate (attribute and elements, not just attribute).

And, I suppose this is where Felix' idea of referencing a wiki page would play, we could add a pointer to the page in the ITS-IG wiki that define the temporary best guess we have for Translate at this time.

As for HTML5 vs XHTML5: I'd say our defaults would apply to both. But we don't mention anything below that because they are out of scope.

withinText='yes': Our defaults would apply to HTML5 and its XHTML representation.
