Hi,

I have updated the list of terms and put my comments:
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/ssn/wiki/SWE_terms

You'll see that I have flagged a number of cases where the SWE/SensorML usage is not satisfactory, using VIM as an alternative reference to explain/illustrate what should be improved.

I have also added the pointers to the sources of the definitions in the text:

Actuator (SensorML): A type of transducer that is a simple element that converts a signal to some action or real world phenomenon. In SensorML a actuator is a particular type of Process Model.

I hope this will generate some robust discussions on a sound basis :)
