Thank you for all the hard work over an extended period. It is a good read.

Also spotted some Coxisms and Portelents.

I support publication providing there are fixes for the only Nits that I could find in paragraphs:

 "Best practice criteria": what should "Please see for further details." point to?

 "Coordinate Reference Systems (CRS)": paragraph 12, "it makes you[r] data more accessible"

 "Linked Data": *** "CSV as well as of Excel)" delete "of"

 "Spatial data identifiers" in the beige box, what should "how you might link to these authoritative identifiers, see ." point to?

 "Indexable Data": in the beige box, what should "organize the Spatial Things into subsets, as described in ." point to?

 "Linking data": in the beige box, what should "This gap in current practice is discussed in ." point to?

 "Spatial data encoding" paragraph 3 what should "ontologies for spatial data is provided in ." point to?

"Geometries and coordinate reference systems": in the beige box, what should "For a high-level comparison of common spatial data vocabularies, see ." point to? Also following sentence too.

I am still only 1/3 of the way through the document and now going home. 

Maybe my browser (Firefox 51.0.1) is not picking up some links or styles? Some links are there, but it is not obvious what to click to follow them, and if 'moused' over quickly, the change in pointer style is not visible. Rather than having a hot link of a . or whatever, some text is needed, which would be better with assistive technologies too.

Still great work, even if the ReSpec software needs tweaking, Chris
