I don't believe anyone substantially disagrees with this, phrased in
these terms, and subject to Rob's concerns about whether we have the
authority/effrontery to add such definitions.
The only variance, as far as I can tell, is over how extensive, and
how thoroughly disambiguating, these definitions must be, should be,
or may practically be.
I have a linked pair of suggestions.
1. At <http://www.ivoa.net/twiki/bin/view/IVOA/
VocabulariesWorkingArea> I've listed the vocabularies that have been
discussed, along with what appear to me to be plausible dispositions.
I'd like to remove question-marks from this table promptly. I've
raised the issue of inclusion or not in another thread. I'd also like
to ask for a 'patron' for each of these vocabularies, just to shepherd
them through whatever disagreements are involved (ideally off-list, so
we don't swamp the list all over again), in time for a published WD
2. Presuming that Rick will take IVOA-T (and presuming that we retain
momentum with that and are trying to get something out very soon), can
we confine the above how-extensive, how-thorough, discussion to the
IVOA-T thread? I think the dispute only practically applies to that
All the best,
