Dear Joakim,

Regarding terminology: could we please avoid the term 'Tag', like in 
'Top Supported Tags' [1]? I think it is completely inappropriate in the 
context of this WG. We're talking about annotation properties, a 
well-defined term in all the metadata community and with a clear 
distinction with what a tag is or can be! In particular, the properties 
we are talking about are generally typed. It would clarify the 
discussion if could forget about 'tagging'.

It is written:
"Entity" is either a "Resource" (abstract concept) or a "Representation" 
(instance/file);

Does it refer to the concepts of Resource and Representation as defined 
in AWWSW? If yes, then a reference should be provided!
Note that the AWWSW task force is currently working on the ontology for 
that, e.g. http://rdfs.org/ns/http-sem/html
There are still looking for the correct term for the super-class of 
Resource and Representation, but it will definitively *NOT* be 'Entity'.
What was wrong with 'Media Objects'? Would 'Media resources' not be good?

Best regards.
