Re: [dxwg] Requirement: There needs to be a property in the profile where the rules for the descriptive content can be provided. This would apply to the entire profile. [ID42] (5.42)

> @larsgsvensson I agree that is an issue, but at the same time this is the current practice in the record-based environment. Given the general resistance to change, I suspect that this will be the practice for a while. That's why I think having both a "record-level" and a field-level capability is a good idea, and if we can have both with a single property that would be best.

+1, a single property would be easier, although I don’t quite know how that would work…

Indeed they are not. If they are published as books we could use urn:isbn.

> The other thing, though, is if we consider this different from indicating generally the standard applied to a data value. If not, then the guidance rules can be included as a type of standard. I don't know if there would be cases where one would need BOTH guidance rules and a link to a formal standard. I can't think of any off-hand, but would we assume that the cardinality of standards applied to a value be non-repeatable? (0,1)?

The only thing I can think of would be dates (“the value is the publication date and if that isn’t known use the manufacturing date” vs. “use an ISO format for the date”). I think the same _could_ apply to values such as floating point numbers etc. That’s why I keep saying that the cataloguing rules and the exchange formats should be kept separate…). This is sort-of-similar to the use of valueVocabulary and encodingScheme in DublinCore.
