Hi Emma,

In our end report I assumed we need to have consistent language in the 
UCs contained therein.

That's why we started identifying which things in the Goals section of 
the UCs that were being said over and over but in different wording. In 
that sense what we did mirrors what the UC owners have written, not our 
own analysis of what the goals really are.

Thus what we found may be goals, requirements, howtos, ...

Basically I think we are still wrestling with a larger question: what 
are we going to do with 40+ UC texts in our end document?

Creating scenarios and goals is kind of an abstraction approach. An 
option is to use these to provide a really condensed description in the 
end document, and put the full UCs in an appendix.

That depends on what you mean with describing a resource and providing 
context for a resource...

Does it mean that you add extra information, ie extra triples, which are 
not in the original dataset?

"facilitate" would consist of providing interface support to add mapping 
statements?

Your suggestion for MAP-VALUE and MAP-METADATA can also be covered with 
our suggested qualifier approach; eg MAP (value), MAP (metada). The 
reason for qualifiers is that every extra option/attribute of a goal 
would end up getting us a too large set of goals.

I don't know what's meant with "cross-domain modelling"... Things may 
become clearer if you publish your goals in relation to your UCs goal texts.

Best,
Mark.
