Greg (& LRMI colleagues),

Many thanks for circulating these drafts. I encourage everyone here to
take a look if they're interested in schema.org extensions.
Educational metadata is one of the trickiest areas to scope, since it
tends to overlap with many other descriptive needs. We have markup for
describing videos and TV programs; books, scholarly articles, and
potentially soon Comics. It would be great if reviewers could bear
such interactions in mind as they take a look at the 0.7 spec. From
what I've seen it's simple and practical, but I'd love to see a bit of
discussion here to get a feel for how it fits in...
