Hi Karen (putting it back to LLD-XG list as I'd like to have the group discuss the following question in the near future)

I like the idea, also. In fact I like it so much that I feel it to be part of one of the LLD incubator's planned deliverables [1] ;-)

When I hear Andrew and Stu mentioning specific models/vocabularies that can be useful for specific needs, I feel the alignment between the two endeavours (best practices and planned LLD deliverable) being quite strong.

Do you really feel that this would be too challenging a task for the group? We're quite numerous onboard, and we could still take care of the editorial actions AND request input from the wider community, as we can do for the first deliverable on use cases.

Cheers,

Antoine
