[poe] normative vs non-normative vocabulary terms

nitmws has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/poe:

== normative vs non-normative vocabulary terms ==
At POE calls it was said that a distinction of "normative" and 
"non-normative" could be applied to terms in the POE vocabulary - 
All terms have one of these two stati, having a look at them I can't 
see a strategy in some cases:

- Actions for Permissions and Prohibitions:
This is a hierarchical vocabulary with "use" (= making use of an 
asset) and "transfer" (= transferring ownership) as the only two top 
level terms. **Why is use normative and transfer non-normative?** (It 
can understand that all narrower and more granular terms are 
non-normative ...)
- Constraint Left Operands:
Out of the 31 Left Operand instances Absolute Asset Position, Count, 
Action Datetime or Period, Delivery Channel, Event Action, Industry 
Context, Language, Payment Amount, Purpose and  Recipient = **only 10 
terms are normative - why these ones?**
- Constraint Operators, Party Functions:
Some are non-normative, the other terms are neither nor.

**In general it would be good to have written down rule for the 
normative/non-normative strategy.**
