ORG: proposed Last Call draft for review

I've carried out the agreed changes, and a number of editorial 
improvements, to the ORG specification and believe it is now ready for 

A static version dated 2012-10-01 is at:


(1) I also updated the "conformance" section based on the current 
discussion between Richard and Phil, adapted for ORG rather than DCAT. 
I've used the term "data interchange" to represent the thing that 
conforms - meaning this to cover publication (by file, SPARQL or 
embedded) and exchange protocols.

(2) ORG has a couple of references to the OPMV vocabulary. I considered 
whether these should be changed to use PROV-O [1]. Technically that 
would be easy, for those parts used in ORG then PROV-O is basically the 
same as OPMV except for names. However, PROV-O is still at WD stage so 
if we made that a dependency we would be blocked waiting for PROV-O to 
proceed.  When PROV-O is published it seems likely that someone will 
provide mappings between it and OPMV, in which case our use of OPMV 
would automatically be compatible with PROV-O.

(3) I've left the document status as Editor's draft, I assume that's 
right until we've reviewed and voted.
