Sorry, still not comfortable with the partial retention of the phrase "base specification". The phrase in text is inevitably linked in the mind of the reader to the Base Specification class definition. If we remove the class, we would, at the very least, need to re-examine all uses of "base specification" but, my preference, is to just remove the term altogether and then, on a second reading of the spec without both Base Specification and "base specification" determine appropriate wording.

Can we just use "dct:Standard" as a replacement for "base specification" initially, as per the PR and the reevaluate in a second phase? This is, in my opinion, a cleaner progression.
