Can I suggest that we have an actual meeting of the Task Force to discuss all of this as a group?  There is  a lot to talk about. And if we are really considering ONIX as a possibility we should get Graham Bell involved as early as possible to see if such a consideration is even feasible and what would be involved. That I think would be a first step.

Also, Ivan, it was Laura Dawson from Bowker who was very interested in schema.org--from Bill's interview with her.  And I've heard her promote it at other times.  So safe to say there is interest there.
