Hi Bryan,

I’m afraid I’m not convinced these requirements are a MUST; the facts
that vocabularies exist doesn’t imply they are a good fit for the
SysInfo API. Could you explain in more details why you think we need to
follow these requirements? What use cases do they make possible?

Currently, and based on the discussions we had during the F2F, I can’t
see them as more than a SHOULD, and I would even lean towards MAY.

(FWIW, rather than discussing that aspect in the requirements, I would
rather see a concrete API proposal that matches their intent, as per
your ACTION-58)
