Thanks Eric.

One more information: a new group will be created in Force11 that will look at 'implementation' of those principles, although I am not yet sure what that would exactly entail. But I am sure there will be an overlap with this group.

I will 'sign up' to that group in any case, which should begin to do some work in the weeks to come. I believe the group will be open to everyone, maybe somebody else would be interested. Note that the interest of the Force11 group is really on scientific data, and not data in general, ie, the scope is more narrow than for this group.

The group did a good job (I believe) in synthesizing a number of independent initiatives that existed before (see http://www.force11.org/node/4785 for the list of participants). The principles are here:
