Coming back to this, I still have big doubts about the methodology and what we're asked to do - at least about the categorization.

I'm looking at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1viuNJx_2dhSoEVOkjCG7cuuqzUqqR7fr4LvmP-t7T2A/ which is what Jaro proposes as a 'consolidated' classification/grouping.

But if I understand Jaro's instructions correctly, especially "red = requirements" then it seems that this list actually introduces new or re-worded requirements. For example there's "Profiles must list the expected constituents of compliant data instances, e.g. classes and properties of RDF data." in red.
This is not in the "list of requirements" at the top of the requirement working space at
The original requirements from that list are now listed as "context", according to Jaro.

I'm sorry but I can't review a grouping that introduces new requirements while we've not yet voted on the ones that we're discussing...
