Tim (et. al):

A soft suggestion -  We may want to put in some examples for the top 10 
domains that at least the folks participating in the WG believe are 
applicable domains.  In other words, I believe some organization on the 
page (via tagging or structure, whatever) that is by domain would 
benefit us.  In order to foster the adoption of the standard, we need to 
show folks that are looking for solutions to specific problems, more so 
than tool builders, how they can solve their specific problems.  Right 
now, I think in general we appeal to tool builders which will elongate 
the adoption cycle.

Examples of such domains would be Journalism, Life Sciences, Financial 
and Legal Audit, etc.  May be we could just do a quick vote on what top 
10 domains are and organize around those.  Anyways, just a thought.

Best.
