Thanks Annette,

I've just read through those enrichment BPs in your version of the doc 
and I like them all. The examples certainly help make it understandable. 
Your points about labelling inferred values is interesting and points to 
the complexity of the subject. Perhaps a line such as "this is a topic 
in its own right and is beyond the scope of the current work" might be 
appropriate. That would then provide a potential hook to the expected 
member submission on the topic.

I really like the last one about responsible use - a minor amendment 
would include a pointer to the DUV ;-)
