I agree completely: not having this written down is a hindrance to sharing
experience. I also agree (if I read you correctly) that rapid prototyping
does not encourage documentation. This is why I never finished the
VOResource tutorial (http://nvo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/VO/WD-RMSchemas.html): both
the pressure to get things working and the concern that these
proto-standards are still changing discouraged me.
