Hi Alisdair,

Based on the questions asked by Melanie and Andra, it seems there are 2 issues:

1. Are there preferred resources from which terms should be drown?
    If so, the Bioschema group should list those resources and declare the criteria for selection/inclusion.

This is a good question and one that I donít think has been considered by the community. I suspect that it will be hard to get community agreement for a set of ontologies from which we should be drawing terms.

2. Is it OK for developers to disregard these bioschema-vetted resources and provide an bioschema json instantiation but typed in their preferred semantic frameworks

By disregarding the profile defined term the data provider would be limiting the potential for interoperability. At this point they would be reliant on the mappings and suitable mappings being available for the terms that they select.


I agree with Michel that ideally, the group should converge to a common framework to increase interoperability but this proove painful

Andra's suggestion alleviates that issue at the expense of creating mapping needs, but this could be asked from the implementers to provide the mapping if they decide to stray away from the bioschema preferred ways.
