Marcia, would you be willing to present the idea of "application
profiles" for subject domains in the Friday afternoon joint session
in Pittsburgh?  It would be very interesting to hear how formally
(or not) the notion of application profile has been defined for
this use case.  Perhaps we could talk about whether the requirements
for this type of application profile are significantly different from
requirements for descriptive-metadata application profiles?   Is it
clear to the frsad community how an application profile should be
constructed, or is this an area where further work is needed?

That's wonderful to hear! :-)
