I wasn't aware of use cases for circ data. I think the issue is  
whether we are mainly or solely talking about bibliographic data. If  
we wish to refer to other library data than I'm not sure we've really  
covered it in the report. We don't mention NCIP (circulation data),  
SUSHI (statistics), serials holdings, RFID standards nor numerous  
other standards being used in those systems. Our examples in the  
vocabulary area seem to all be bibliographic. Perhaps if we don't want  
to exclude these others we need to say that although they could  
potentially be used as linked data, they have not yet been defined as
