Are there any plans to add a <trans-alt-title> to the DTD, or can I just add another instance of <alt-title> with an xml:lang attribute?

Using ,alt-title> in this way is very much in the spirit of JATS.
There can be many reasons for an alternate title: a short version
for a Table of Contents or running head, an ASCII-only version for
texting, etc. Another language seems like a perfectly good reason
to me.

You can keep the @specific-use the same on the two <alt-title>s
and make the @xml:lang different. That would not be difficult
to write processing for.
