Hi all,
  on today's call we got some feedback from Chris Mungall, Melissa Haendel,
and Harry Hochheiser. Chris asked whether (and how), we could make
arbitrary collections, for instance, chembl-rdf as a dataset (without
necessarily specifying the version). i wondered if perhaps we could
generalize our "version level" to a "subset level", which could very well
include version subsets.


I also wondered whether this subset level description could point to the
distribution level descriptions as sources used in creating it, as more
abstract than our previous distribution-to-distribution case.


 what do you think?
