Hi all,

Have we decided anything about Andrea's suggestion? (see the mail attached)

I am in favor of his proposal, namely to  use "data usage vocabulary"
instead of   "dataset usage", but I guess  the DUV editors have the last
word here:) .


PS. No matter what we will decide on  DUV, I wouldn't change the D in the
DQV,  keeping it as Data Quality Vocabulary.

I don't know if this issue has already been reported or discussed, but I
noticed that DUV is referred to inconsistently in both the DUV and the DQV
specifications (actually, I haven't checked the other DWBP specifications).

More precisely, although the "official" name of DUV is "dataset usage
Vocabulary", sometimes it is cited as "data usage vocabulary".

I take this opportunity also to raise a question on the choice behind the
official name of DUV - i.e., whether there's a reason for using "dataset
usage" instead of "data usage". Personally, I think that it may be
misleading, also because DQV = "*data* quality vocabulary". As far as I can
see, their scope is not different - they're both about *data*. So why call
them differently?

Thanks in advance
