+1 vocab-people

And while we're on a naming theme, how is everyone with:

vocab-org for the Organization Ontology?

vocab-data-cube for the Data Cube Vocabulary?

+1 gld-bp

Thereby retaining the GLD prefix but keeping it short.  I don't think adding 'pub' and 'ld' at the short name stage adds value/differentiation.  We can say all that stuff in the first sentence or two.

Thanks everyone.  Speak with you Thursday and hopefully we can finalized the permanent URL for documents and its future version at w3.org.
