Hi Jim,

I don't think there is a move away from the ConsolidatedConcepts 
document.   But we are definitely in search
of terminology that is more intuitive!

Reason why the word "state" remained so visible is that the definition 
of thing stated: have properties modeling aspects of *stuff states*.

How the WG decides to tackle ISSUE-28 is up for debate!

Regards,
Luc

I think a critical aspect of going away from the word state was that I don't think we are talking about states - a file is not a state of a document whereas it could be a view/perspective of a document, e.g. something in a different ontology that shares state/real stuff with the first thing. Does this issue represent a shift back towards a model based on states? Or is it just shorthand for needing to describe when two things are views/perspectives of something?
