Hi Laufer,

Thanks for your comments! My comments are inline:

Ok! We're gonna correct these references.

I am not sure if it is necessary to have specializations for the BP
Document data. What will be the differences between these specializations?
I don't see different ways of implementing the Document Data BP, for
example. Could you please give some examples?

I think that the BP Document Data should refer to all types of information
that should be used to describe the data, i.e,  Document data means to
document all type of information that describe the data, including:
licenses, provenance and locale. Maybe, we need to make this more clear in
the BP.

I understand your point, but I still don't see how to create these
specializations. Maybe, Document Data should be "MUST" instead of "SHOULD".
