Which shows that indeed we would need both qualitative and quantitative 
scales; however, if we want to build a bridge between the communities 
(e.g., for using labelled data to drive a synthesis model), we will need 
to provide mechanisms for mapping between qualitative and quantitative 
scales. As everything else, using this mechanism will need to be 
optional, it must be possible to tune it to specific needs, but we 
should provide a "default" mapping that we recommend to use if no 
reasons speak against it.

I agree, as things are getting concrete, it stirs up interest. I will 
try to integrate what I can from the comments I have received by the end 
of today, so that we can finalise this report and continue with 
discussion on how to realise the spec. I will try to stay vague where we 
know we need to discuss more, and circulate the result.
