Michael,

Thank you for the feedback and the comment - good spot, I will edit this later today.

I’m still sorting out the logistics for attending the PlugFest, but I’m hopeful I should be able to attend (I have already registered my interest). I’d like to have some use cases prepared long before then, though.

Best wishes,  

Graeme Coleman

I think a better way to describe a TD is as a specification: a document that describes something else.  A TD can *use* various (semantic) vocabularies in its description, though, and ties into the Semantic Web specifically, so that is worth mentioning.
