Hi all,

Per my action from the call today, here is a Google Doc for
brainstorming the language we'll use to present how our terminology will
be used in the Data Model spec:


Please suggest additional phrases where the terminology may be used to
help people understand what they feel most comfortable with using.

The language in the document above will be moved to the terminology
playground app that can be used to try out variations of the suggested
terminology before people vote:


Here is a draft terminology poll that does Instant Run-off Voting, this
will go live next Tuesday at the earliest.


Here's what we need from those that want to participate by next Monday
(June 26th):

1. Provide unique example phrases that use the terminology in the first
2. Propose missing terminology that has support from at least two
   people (and no more than two objections) to the poll.


1. We'll decide whether or not to run the poll on next Tuesdays VCWG
   call (June 27th).
2. The poll will be open for 7 days and will close at the beginning of
   the following Tuesday (July 4th).

I suggest we run the poll with the following additional rules:

* We want as many EDUCATED INDIVIDUAL VOTERS voting as possible. Please
  abstain from voting if you don't fully understand the consequences of
  this vote.
* Please vote in an individual capacity, not on behalf of your
  organization, we want to know how individuals will react to the
  language (not what your official corporate position is). If you have
  to ask your co-workers how they voted, you're doing it wrong. :)
* The result of the vote is non-binding, the final decision will be
  made by the Editors and the Chairs of the VCWG. This is a data
  gathering exercise.
