The statistical people themselves are doing stuff around XKOS with Explanatory notes, see http://www.ddialliance.org/Specification/XKOS/1.0/OWL/xkos.html#note-ext.

 

*	Yes, that looks like a possible carrier for this sort of information. I don't see there a specific code list for the distinctions Will alludes to (real world anomalies versus data recording anomalies etc etc.) but it provides a sensible SKOS-based representation that we could use to capture the list in a way that would be re-usable in Data Cube, CSVW et al. Would this WG or a Community Group be a good place to turn such a list into this kind of representation?

 

My take on that is that this group is the place where we can provide ways to link to such domain-specific lists (types and other things), but not to develop the values of such lists. 

 

Not just because a Working Group only has a limited lifetime, and these kinds of lists need to be maintained for a long time. Also, because it might be more sensible that domain-specific lists are managed by the domain experts who need them.
