Profile review criteria

ACTION 2008-03-26: Andrew to edit Term Decision Tree -,
proposing a more appropriate title.

ACTION 2008-03-26: Andrew to write up criteria for
differentiating Vocabulary and Syntax Encoding Schemes

Ongoing actions - any of these on agenda?

ACTION 2007-08-26: Pete and Mikael to investigate the usefulness of
defining a class of 'non-literal' and assess what the consequences of
this would be for machine processability.  (Usage Board should track
issues involved in the notion of a range of 'non-literal'.)

ACTION 2007-11-23: Joe and Andrew to edit a discussion of issues with the
element Coverage
for discussion on a future telecon.  (Note: 'spatial' and 'temporal' are
"correct" but 'coverage' is too broad -- it allows for topic and this is
in conflict with 'subject' [TK] -- this is an Application Profile issue
[TB].)  (This issue is on the back burner for now.)

ACTION 2007-08-26: Tom and Mikael to create a draft "Simple Dublin
Core" AP using the 1.1 namespace and which models everything
as literals. Document the legacy functional requirements and
the organizational context for this AP.  See discussion at

ACTION 2007-08-26: Andrew, Tom, and Dan B, in context of Agents
TG, to finish the assessment of FOAF against the functional
requirements. Include context describing kinds of places where FOAF would
be useful and where it wouldn't be useful.  Following this assessment,
the TG to propose/recommend a course of action to DCMI Directorate.
See  Update 2007-12-12:
Andrew to progress in January.

ACTION 2007-03-17: Joe to draft a document discussing issues related
to principles and purpose of UB decision-making.  (The context was
the decision to define ISO639-2 as a set of codes.) Update 2008-01-23:
will flow out of profile review criteria.
