Dear all,

> http://www.w3.org/2008/05/07-swd-minutes.html#action02] 

I had a first try browsing the requirements and checking their status. 
Jon and Daniel could and can not work on it these weeks, so I've put the 
stuff in on the wiki, where it can be later on edited and all changes 
explicitly recorded if they wish so.

http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/wiki/UCRMaterial/RequirementStatus

This page lists the URIs of the requirement found on the SKOS Use Cases 
and Requirements Working Draft
For each requirement, a short status declaration tells whether the 
requirement has been completely met. This indication can be sometimes 
nuanced.
'negatively met' especially means that the requirement is not met in the 
current SKOS vocabulary, but we are fully aware of it and eventually 
point at potential solutions outside of SKOS.
For all of them, an explanation is given, most often as a link to one 
section of a SKOS document (Reference or Primer) that deals with the matter.

In my perspective, all the accepted requirements are met.
Most of the candidate requirements are also met, though some are met 
only partially, or via means that are outside of the SKOS proposal.
I am only uncomfortable with two requirements for which the resolution 
are not that clear or obvious (compatibility with ISO 11179 and 
Consistency checking). But these are clearly not a matter for objection 
as far as I'm concerned.

Cheers,

Antoine
