As a point of reference, the OBO id policy is documented here
(currently google docs, soon on obofoundry site)
https://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0Acx6Blq96uycZHpwcm5td18wZGtkMmdiZ3Y&hl=en

FWIW, "OBO Foundry candidate" isn't an official designation, though it
is often used descriptively by projects that have asked for review.
