Dear George, Susanne, Thomas
Relating to the practical situation in the Tagging use case, it seems
that the use case assumes that users will tag their content after they
have uploaded it, and that they will have access to terminals that
support keyboards.  However, users may want to real-time tag their
content when they acquire it.  They may be mobile and therefore using
limited interaction devices, and typing textual tags on a mobile phone
(or a wi-fi enabled camera) is not easy.  Access to suggested tags such
as proposed by Automatic Linguistic Indexing of Pictures - Real Time (
www.alipr.com) is a partial solution but this would only work for simple
content where appropriate tags already exist.
Another possibility would be to use voice tags which can be added when
the user captures the content, which leads to my question on
interoperability.  Does the use case imply textual only tags?  Does it
make any difference if voice tags are applied?  Does SKOS support
multi-lingual tags?
