Let’s say that the framework offered by the XLIFF 2 specification is
broader than gettext.

- Agent :: any application or tool that generates (creates), reads,
  edits, writes, processes, stores, renders or otherwise handles XLIFF

  Agent is the most general application conformance target that
  subsumes all other specialized user agents disregarding whether they
  are defined in this specification or not.

While the primary focus is on being a lossless interchange format, usage
of XLIFF as a processing format is neither encouraged nor discouraged or

Could we reuse existing features to get _something else_?

XLIFF could be used as a standardized template to store data in a
structured way. For example, Font Lock mode apply an appropriate
formatting in a buffer using a syntax table.

About the XLIFF edition, I mixed two kinds of editions: 
by the user or processes. Here both are useful.

In my opinion, the PO mode is not useful in this workflow.
