I mentioned in the 10/19 plenary call that SSN alignment to O&M could have benefits in terms of implementation. The reason is that O&M is imbedded into not only a number of OGC standard schemas and vocabularies, but also into data services such as SOS and Sensor Things API, as well as record types for SWE registries. These all include descriptions of sensors, what they respond to, the procedures they follow, etc., that are presently a combination of SensorML and service-specific XML or JSON. An SSN vocabulary that could augment these metadata and provide an easier-to-aggregate model for characterizing observations would, I think, be able to motivate several rapid implementations in both data and software. Such incorporation into OGC practice would of course increase interest in and connection to SSN for OGC  and its members.
