Hi all

I'm wondering about
http://schema.org/status
being used only on
http://schema.org/MedicalStudy

This property "status" has various definitions (if any) in various
vocabularies.
see http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/terms?q=status

People often take for granted that there is a "status" property in Dublin
Core, and put a dcterms:status in their metadata without double checkng -
but there is none.

foaf:status has the very specific definition of user status, mood etc

dbpedia-owl:status does not give any definition ...

bibo:status seems the most reasonable basis for extending the semantics of
schema:status (but bibo does not eat completely its dog food, using
vs:term_status internally)

Proposal : add schema:status to schema:CreativeWork description, and change
its definition to a more general one along the one of bibo.

Note that this will not solve the issue of various meanings of "status" in
Biology
see http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/terms?q=status&tag=Biology

That's what you get with a unique namespace policy :)
