The document as it is states that there is a distinction between "specification" and "data specification". This definition is only for "data specification" and "specification" is given a different definition in lines 102-104. Yet this definition will be linked from any uses of "specification". That seems to be inaccurate. Either "specification" is given the DC Terms definition and is separate from data definition, OR it is a substitute for "data specification" within this document. I don't see how it can be both. 

You could either do:

&lt;dt>&lt;dfn data-lt="specification">data specification&lt;/dfn>

on line 99, or you could change 102-104 to say something like:

"Within this document we use "specification" and "data specification" interchangeably, with the same meaning as given in the definition for "data specification".

With that latter you could leave the dfn statement as it is now.

Do you see the difference?
