The problem here is not the centralized UCD approach, but (as I said
to the Thoery IG in Victoria) that most of what they need to describe
is metadata (or tags for their models).
If the "proposed UCD" is not metadata (i.e., if it is the description
of the result of the calculation, equivalent to a physical quantity
resulting from an observation) then the "proposed UCD" can become an
For the rest, they are just building their own vocabulary, like other
communities... and we can help SKOSify it!
