It seems that everytbody is quite happy with VOTable --
my interpretation of an absence of reaction being a a full agreement :-)
There is still room for discussions... and the agenda does not need
to be frozen now.
See many of you in Kyoto !

> Is there any risk to generate failures of working VObs elements ?
> Should we add a dedicated "ucd1" element ?
>-- the question of the VOTable schema, initiated by Gerard Lemson
> Surprisingly there was no comment about Gerard's proposal --
