I think IA2 should be moved to github as well.

1. I think this is the wrong way around. "This" refers to the object
we're pointing *from*. Target means the object we're pointing *at* (or
*to*). Details means the object we're pointing *at* (the target)
provides details for *this* object.
2. I think it'd be good to give a broader description here. I realise
many of the other relations don't, but details versus describedBy needs
some clarification and I think we should be providing more detail where
possible anyway. Perhaps this:
"The target object provides the detailed, extended description for this
object. It provides more detailed information than would normally be
provided using the IA2_RELATION_DESCRIBED_BY relation. A common use for
this relation is in digital publishing where an extended description
needs to be conveyed in a book that requires structural markup or the
embedding of other technology to provide illustrative content."

"This object provides the detailed, extended description for the target
object. See IA2_RELATION_DETAILS."

Again, I think these are the wrong way around. I suggest this:
"The target object is the error message for this object."
> +/** The target object is an error for this object. */
> +const WCHAR *const IA2_RELATION_ERROR_FOR = L"errorFor";
"This object is the error message for the target object."
On another note, is there any chance the Linux Foundation would let us
develop IA2 on GitHub? Having to do code review by pasting into emails
really sucks. Probably not worth the effort and controversy, but ... ug. :)
