Hello all,

I notice Principle no. 1 (The linkabilty of Geospatial Information
published on the web should be improved) largely coincides with the
linkability requirement that we have already identified. This leads me to
the question: what is the relationship between requirements and principles?
I think there is a good chance that the princples are the same as the
non-functional requirements that we talked about in this thread
<https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sdw-wg/2015Apr/0036.html>.

Now this thead shows that there is a desire to make non-functional
requirements explicit. So how about adding a chapter the the UCR document
to decribe non-functional requirements? Like functional requirements, we
could link non-functional requirements to deliverables. This thread is
specifically about the Best Practices, but some principles could also apply
to other deliverables.

Regards,
Frans
