      Make as clear as possible that those are two mutually exclusive approaches to the datacat, stress that the non-representation case is superior as suggested, but actually keep it in both places, link each other to make clear this is no mistake..

      5.9.9.3 reviewed in the editors' draft: http://tools.oasis-open.org/version-control/browse/wsvn/xliff/trunk/xliff-21/xliff-core-v2.1-wd03.pdf Approved by consensus

      Description

      The Locale filter data category is listed in two places:

      • In section "5.9.9.3 Locale Filter" as a data category that is not used in
        XLIFF
      • In section "5.9.6.3 Locale Filter" as a data category defined in the ITS
        module

      I understand the reasoning behind this: If you have a source file with Locale
      Filter you can either A) create an XLIFF where only
      the relevant data are extracted, or B) create an XLIFF file with the ITS
      metadata.

      But I think it is highly confusing to list the data category in both sections.

      If Locale Filter attributes can be used in XLIFF then we should have only
      section 5.9.6.3. We should also have some text at the top
      of that section that basically says something like:

      • The best way to extract a source file that uses Locale Filter is to create an
        XLIFF file for each target locale with just the
        relevant content.
        [This by far the recommended option: in the real world very few XLIFF tools
        will be able to deal with that data category.]
      • However, one can also use Locale Filter in XLIFF, and here is how you would do
        it... [and have the rest of the current section]
