Actually, probably not in this case (since the semantics of "during" are a
bit different that what we might associate with "="), but it's probably
appropriate to take this either offline or to the ZING list.

Count me in - I think we can generate some interest from those communities.
I expect Eliot will have something to contribute here shortly, anyway.  I'm
reassured, at least for the time being, that the things we require from GEO
(and GILS and CIP) seem to be possible, if not explicitly enumerated.
