Hi all,

I think that the last statement :
"(*) provide guidance on what existing and/or new RDF vocabularies
should be used when publishing rdf data."
is very general.
It gives the impression that we require NISO to provide general
guidance on the use of RDF.
Maybe we can make it a little more specific by adding "when publishing
RDF data about institutions" or something like that.

We have a nice set of comments now !
