Dear all,

I have made a lot of edits to the section on data vocabularies in the BP document.

- heavily edited all paragraphs in the intro

- included Eric Kauz' input for a couple of best practices (thanks, Eric!) [1]

- added a new best practices as I had suggested in an email earlier [2] as there was no objection

- added an issue on the overlap between our BP and the Best Practices for Publishing Linked Data [3]. The issue is not yet in the tracker - if anyone can create it it's highly welcome!

I am still not 100% happy with the result. The BPs should have more flesh, there's a lot I would like to add or change in the rest, especially considering what Mark and I have done at [4]. But clearly I don't have time: I have jumped in to help on this section at the last moment, this was not scheduled in my week :-(
I believe however that for a first version of the BP document, it should be alright. At least we have some content and BPs for the section now, which have been contributed/reviewed by more than one person!

Finally, I must apologize to the editors: I have created a pull request in Github, but didn't dare to merge it. A couple of us have been editing the doc at the same time, and I don't have the time to resolve potential conflicts. For the record, my changes are only in section 7.4, and in case it's needed my own copy of the BP is updated at
