good morning;

the term “in-scope” appears frequently in the current draft[1] where its definition and usage run contrary to the meaning which is customarily associated with the word[2].
if your intent is to produce a document which is accessible and readily understood, if the term itself is intended to characterize a triple, rather than the relation between a name and lexical entity, and its usage involves computing the subset of a graph, why do you not use a term which better connotes that that meaning?

best regards, from berlin,
