> How do non-IVOA projects handle FK5?
Well, Rob, look at the log in your eye before the specks in others
There is an FK5, with pointer to the original, but no explanatory
comments indicating how the richness of the original metadata were
impoverished to produce a simple consistency.
I have had to deal with situations wherein the failure to appreciate
the subtle meaning of the metadata has resulted in products which fail
to meet contractual specifications.
I have no objection to STC & VOTable deciding on a simpler model,
but so doing has implications that deserve mention in user guides.
