Sunny,

This is important information, thank you.  The Groningen Declaration is, it
seems, strongly supportive of a number of the use cases we reviewed this
past Tuesday.   I was not aware of it, but this is a good find.  In
discussions with the IMS Global executive director, Rob Abel, this week
there was mention of AACRAO, I can ask for an introduction from Rob to
Michael Reilly to raise his awareness/interest, if the group wants.
