@smrgeoinfo Thanks, I agree with what you say above. I didn't mean that meaning of dct:Standard is a type, I meant that the role of the class was to set a type, and a class is not a document. Obviously I wasn't clear. The dct:Standard definition is purposely vague. We had a DCMI discussion about it somewhat recently, and I can't remember now if we made any changes to the definition, but we definitely did not want to equate it with a more rigid ISO definition (e.g. "established by consensus and approved by a recognized body") because that is more formal than DCMI intends. We had a lot of discussion about how people might interpret "recognized body" and that seemed to require a definition of its own. I would rather go with your pragmatic approach.
