Hi Antoine,

Thanks for your message!

I agree that both BP seem very natural and maybe because of this they
may be very simple. I just think that the writing of the BP can be
improved a little bit to make them more clear, but this can be done
for a next version of the document.

However, for this first version, it is important that every BP is
complete, i.e., every BP section must be filled.

The Vocabulary Versioning BP is complete, but the Reuse Vocabularies
BP still has missing information (Possible Approach to Implementation
and How Test).

I'm gonna bring back these two BP and then we work to complete the
Reuse Vocabulary. Is it ok for you?
