Hi Ghislain,

Yes I agree that this should be more specific to the modeling decisions of DUV.
And the direction you highlight seems good. But before moving on, I'm counting on the DUV editors to pick their prefered case of class or property selection.
This could influence the second part of the paragraph, and also where the whole thing stands in the document. I had foreseen it could be an example in BP 16, 17 or 18, next to the numbered examples already there [1]. It really depends on the case: by default BP17 is the most natural, but one could select a class instead of another because it's part of a standard (then this would be an example for BP16), or because the class initially chosen was too much semantically constrained (then this would be an example for BP18).

cheers,

Antoine

However, some initial choices of classes and properties has been revised over the course of vocabulary design. For example @@Class1@@ has been replaced by @@Class2@@ and @@prop1@@ has been replaced by @@prop2@@. While the constructs initially chosen had appropriate semantics, some external factors had to be considered. Especially, vocabularies that have been created and by large groups or consortia and that benefit from their constant stewardship are more authoritative that vocabularies maintained by only by one person. Vocabularies created by practitioners from the industry are likely to be less subject to change than artefacts created by researchers. A vocabulary hosted on a W3C namespace, like DCAT, PROV or SKOS, benefits from solid technical guarantees of
