Hi All,

I would also give a strong DITTO to the leadership Susie is providing  
on this extremely important issue.  Getting clarification on the pros  
& cons is essential to catalyzing broader adoption of SWTech.

I would also add I'm extremely grateful to ALL the experts who've  
been presenting clear arguments and information related to this  
issue.  It's all been extremely valuable.  Susie is working very hard  
to collate this information and provide this as a resource to the  
community.  As Alan mentioned, this will remain an ongoing and  
critical debate, and it will be of value to us all to help provide a  
clearing house for documentation related to to this issue on the  
BioRDF Wiki pages.

The group of people listening in on this debate here on this list are  
a self-selected population of technically astute folks with  
implementation of SWTech on their minds - and probably on their  
immediate list of TODOs, if not already on their list of previous  
achievements.  Most will be very knowledgeable of the general  
technical issues and will be likely to dig into the details presented  
on both sides of the argument.   I have found all the details  
extremely illuminating - especially the thorough background and  
references provided by Sean and the specifics given regarding the  
debates the TAG has had on this issue.

I think I can assure Carole no one here would be likely to take the  
achievements of those who've implemented LSID-based systems - and ARK  
and the others - lightly - or those who might, would be doing  
themselves and the communities they represent a great disservice.

I look forward to Monday and the follow-up discussions both on the  
list, in future TCons, and on the HCLSIG-BioRDF Wiki.
