Annette still has some concerns about the Data Preservation BPs [1]. I think it is important to discuss these issues with the group and try to find a solution for this. 

BP Use a trusted serialization format for preserved data dumps
To the extent that this is in scope, it is covered under the BP about using standardized formats. We could add a note to that mentioning the value for preservation. I don’t think this needs to be a separate BP.

BP Update the status of identifiers
To the extent that this is in scope, it should be covered under versioning or unavailability. What are “preserved” datasets? Are they available on the web? If not, it is out of scope. If they are, then they are versions.

BP Assess dataset coverage, is still written in the context of archiving data, which we have agreed was out of scope. It is valuable for the point that datasets should have minimal dependencies on external entities that may not be preserved. It needs to be rewritten to be about that rather than about assessing a dataset for its value in an archive.
