Hi Phil,

Thanks a lot for the new BP! I liked the BP and I really liked the
introduction because it helps to understand the context where BP will be
applied (identifiers for datasets and versions of datasets). IMO this is
going in the right direction!

I think we should update the document to include these new BP and the new
introduction for the Data Identification section.
