Ivan - thanks for the great work on this.

I am wondering as another experiment if it would be feasible to come
up with an XSLT template example that can then use the RDF result for
something else. This would give some teeth to at least one of the
template alternatives we are discussing.

Thanks,
Yakov

At present, we may find ourselves in a situation when no column name is specified. If the CSV file is a 'Core Tabular Data' (but not annotated), and the metadata does not have a schema/column data set; all these are indeed optional. In a previous version of the data model there was a rule set on some sort of a default naming of the columns, but that is, somehow, gone. I have added something in this document, but I am not sure that is the right place.
