--- Comment #2 from Erika Doyle Navara <erika.doyle@microsoft.com> ---
It seems that the most intuitive behavior would be to only translate
translatable attributes when their element is in the translate-enabled state,
and in all other cases not to translate an element's attribute values. 

As I read it, this is the behavior currently described in the spec, but I'd be
happy to take a stab at making this more explicit:

https://github.com/w3c/html/commit/572aa7b55bcf60eb7f1e8642f1203229ad20e70c

Is there usage data or use cases suggesting otherwise? I'm having a hard time
imagining why one might want to translate the translatable attributes but not
the text node children of an element.

If the clarification looks okay, I'll merge it into the HTML5 CR spec.
