Sounds reasonable about your approach with the Dublin Core vocabulary,
 It would be useful if possible that your experiences and
methodologies are recorded in some fashion to help describe a pattern
for others to follow who also wish to map their vocabularies to PROV.

I don't entirely agree with the concept of the Connection Task Force
being on hold until the draft documents are stable enough, because
this perspective represents only one side of each "connection".  The
other side of each connection is articulating provenance requirements
and practices.  I 'm not advocating we meet frequently, but I would be
in support of maintaining our informal report.   For instance my
connection work continues on my various research endeavors, but it
would be nice to have a means to share this with our working group.

Thoughts?

Eric
