Just a brief word of support for Mark's concern. When a thesaurus is
being used for its intended purpose, i.e. information retrieval, what
matters is the Concept rather than the Term, so you would think that
notes on Terms are quite irrelevant. But while you are the editor
building and maintaining the thesaurus, and perhaps sharing your data
with other editors, it is sometimes useful to be able to record
housekeeping information about individual terms. I can see that the
model becomes more complicated if you allow terms to have notes, but it
also becomes more versatile, more generally applicable.

Hi Alistair,

Sorry I didn't have time to go over the final draft, I skimmed through 
it now and it looks good!

Two things I think we should have a look at before Februari are 
whether or not Terms are separate entities (to be able to attach notes 
to them - not sure but I think this wasn't resolved) and issues 
concerning pre- and post-coordination.

I hope to address before the end of the current chartered lifetime of
SWBPD-WG, i.e. before Feb 2006, for initial discussion at the f2f.
There's some hard questions in there, so the next couple of months
should be interesting!
