Hi emmanuelle,

Some more reactions on your mail re. individual sections

In fact we should be careful to remove the comments re. the wiki name on the template to be sent by mail!

I suggest:
[
The main audience of your case. for example scholars, the general public, service providers, archivists...
]
Btw I'd put target audience before the "Use case scenario" section.

+1 for dropping it from the version we should circulate by mail.

[
This section is used to refer to existing technologies or approaches which achieve the use case (Hint: Specific approaches in the library domain). It may especially refer to running prototypes or applications
]

I'll paste them there. But I prefer to send emails also, so that people know about them :-)
