pre-CR review of I18N issues for WoT Thing Description [I18N-ACTION-835]

Hello WOT-WG,

This note is a follow-up on my action item [1] from the Internationalization WG. In our teleconference today, per our understanding that you will shortly (if you haven’t already) request a CR transition for the WoT Thing spec [2], we reviewed the status of our open “wide review” comments.

Currently we have four issues open against your spec. Of these, two are set to “tracking” and considered part of “future work” on your side. One of them is your self-review and is marked for closure. The one remaining “actual” issue [4] is about indicating base direction. At TPAC, the JSON-LD WG agreed to take a set of actions to address the problem in LD. As support in LD arrives, you might need to alter the forward-looking statements in your spec about direction metadata in @context, etc. In the meantime, I don’t think this is a blocker for your advancement to CR: you’ve done as much as you can.

The one call-out I’d make is that your spec contains an algorithm or set or instructions for how to determine the base direction which I think might be better if it were removed in favor of our providing a reference in one of our WG NOTEs. I mentioned this in my reply to your issue 643 [4]. Could you let us know what you think of this proposal?

Thanks for your help and for the work to address our comments!

Regards (for I18N),

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
