Title: DCMI Review of Application Profiles
Identifier: /usage/meetings/2006/04/profile-review/index.shtml

Basic documents for the review of application profiles

-- Dublin Core Application Profile Guidelines
      /usage/documents/2005/09/03/profile-guidelines/

      Changes needed:
      -- Strengthen the requirement of assigning URIs to any
         non-previously-existing terms.
      -- Other changes to the Guidelines may be necessary to
         bring this into line with the Abstract Model (e.g., to
         distinguish between Value Strings and Value URIs as 
         in the draft Collection Description profile).
