I don't know if this issue has already been reported or discussed, but I 
noticed that DUV is referred to inconsistently in both the DUV and the 
DQV specifications (actually, I haven't checked the other DWBP 

More precisely, although the "official" name of DUV is "dataset usage 
Vocabulary", sometimes it is cited as "data usage vocabulary".

I take this opportunity also to raise a question on the choice behind 
the official name of DUV - i.e., whether there's a reason for using 
"dataset usage" instead of "data usage". Personally, I think that it may 
be misleading, also because DQV = "*data* quality vocabulary". As far as 
I can see, their scope is not different - they're both about *data*. So 
why call them differently?

Thanks in advance
