I think two problems should be addressed in the VO Registry:
1. Expert knowledge registry
Given an question, for example, "Find all galaxies with a deVaucouleours
profile and the photometric colors consistent with an elliptical galaxy"
(taken from Question 5, Alexander S. Szalay 2000, Designing and Mining
Multi-Terabyte Astronomy Archives:The Sloan Digital Sky Survey),
application service needs know "what is a galaxy", "what is a
deVaucouleours profile", "what is an elliptical galaxy". Should, how and
where these expert knowledge be registered?
2. International language support
Can VO permit users to submit queries in Chinese or Russian? How these
queries are transformed and executed taking advantage of VO Registry?
All kinds of comments and suggestions are welcome.
