In App A [1] we have:

Value vocabularies such as the Library of Congress Subject Headings,  
AGROVOC, the Virtual International Authority File (VIAF), Dewey  
Decimal Classification, and GeoNames;

Metadata element sets such as Dublin Core Metadata Terms, the elements  
of RDA: Resource Description and Access, Simple Knowledge Organization  
System (SKOS), and the Friend of a Friend vocabulary (FOAF).

Is there a reason that we give the acronyms for FOAF and SKOS and not  
for DC or RDA or LCSH and various other things in this section? It  
seems that we should do them all the same, no? And AGROVOC is not  
spelled out anywhere that I can find (even on their web page) so I  
guess it's a word that just happens to be upper-cased?
