Hi Kerry,

Thanks for bringing this up.

As pointed out before, I would be happy to take the lead on the 
SOSA-core integration into the main document.

As far as naming is concerned, I would hope we can stay with SOSA-core 
or just SOSA. SSN as acronym is missing the observation and actuation 
part but puts emphasis on networks which is something that we  have not 
really addressed in that much detail. Using a different name is also a 
good way of reminding people that this is something new (and different 
than, say, the SSO).
