Hi Fadi, John & Phil,
There is a detailed thread that Peter Krantz kicked off about open data set vocabularies on Friday (1-Mar).  It was sent to the euopendata@lists.okfn.org and public-egov-ig@w3.org list and not the public gld working group list (unfortunately).  

I encourage you to look at the thread in its entirety as people from EU & US are weighing on with a variety of answers and this is near & dear to the charter of the GLD WG.  Unfortunately, people have omitted the entire thread when responding but I'll forward some responses FYR.

Great example of where relevant guidance is required in context of what people are using today open data initiatives and describing gov't data sets.

Phi, Deirdre, Martin  -- This would be great material for a talk at the European Data Forum and/or Open Data on the Web workshop, both in April.  Just saying ...


Cheers,

Bernadette Hyland, co-chair
