Your comment on 4.3.2.2 Return the Values of a Specific List:
> In 4.3.2.2 it is said
> 
> "Return values for all the supplied Properties, returning empty values
> for those that are not known."
> 
> ¿What is an empty value? It is needed to clarify.
> 
> If a PropertyValue has the value "" is it also an empty value?
> 
> If a PropertyValue which is in an enumeration has no elements in the
> enumeration is it also an empty value?


Working Group Resolution (LC-1961):
Edit section 3 on Vocabularies to clarify that values may be empty and
this means that the method exists() returns false. The clarifying text
proposed by the commenter has been accepted and reads: "A Property may
have an "unknown value" when the actual value is not known to the DDR
implementation, and in this case the exists() method of the PropertyValue
interface must return False."
