It has been suggested that the need for the SV is obvious and pressing. Is
it? What for? Maybe people could reply to this with their own views.
One question: is the IVOA able to create something which seems to more
properly be the domain of the astronomical community as a whole. We already
have trouble getting astronomers to engage with the VO (or so I gather from
the concerns of the exec): will the creation of what is termed a Standard
Vocabulary for astronomy be seen as an arrogant assumption? Is there some
IAU (or similar) group we ought to engage with to ensure that this effort is
welcomed by astronomers?
