Hi Guillaume,

Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the email
address for public comments before. I has now been fixed. I checked and I
hadn't received your email before. Apologies for that and thanks for

We will discuss your comments on the next meeting and get back to you.

Best regards,

> the editor of Disco one of the Related non-W3C vocabularies you have been
> discussing.
> - Note 5 / Issue #98: The subtyping relationship between dctype:Dataset
> and dcat:Dataset has been removed. Although the subtype was indeed too
> restrictive, should another relationship not be added to characterise the
> relationship between both and leave the user helpless?
> - 11 DCAT Profiles, Issue 72, "for spcific applications" --> "for
> specific applications"
> - Define guidelines how to create a DCAT description of a VOID or Data
> Cube dataset <https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/88>:
>     ** We agree with the fact that this "DCAT using QB" should be
> harmonised with VOID and clarified. It is crucial for the official
> statistics community to use the proper semantics and relationship between
> these vocabularies.
>     ** In our mind, qb:DataStructureDefinition and qd:Slice are meant to
> express subsets (see also #161 <https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/161>) like
> "startups in Italy". A similar use case is provided in the RDF Data Cube
> Recommendation.
> Comment from the DDI Alliance that clarifies the link between Disco and
> the future DDI4:
> - Disco is based on common content of DDI Lifecycle 3.2 and DDI 2.1
> focused on the discovery of statistical (micro)datasets.. Disco was never
> formally published by DDI.
> The new model-driven version of the standard, DDI 4, will be also
> expressed as an OWL ontology (in the works), and be a complete and in-depth
> overhaul. In particular, it will encompass all kinds of data, not only
> statistical micro data. It takes over the features from Disco. A prototype
> release of DDI 4 will be published in the middle of the year. It will
> include the UML model and related complete representations/bindings in XML
> Schema and OWL/RDF-S.
