Sounds exciting! But I'm still confused: is <gloss> meant only for
identifying glosses that are present in a source text (which is how I
understand its definition in the guidelines), or also for providing
explanations added by an editor (which is how I understand your use
described in this thread)? Or is your proposed stand-off approach a way
to accomplish the latter?
