The current version of the Activity Streams Vocabulary includes a few
Activity types that, while present in many example existing social
networking platforms, are not captured in any of our user stories.
Should we keep those or should we remove them (Note that any
implementation can add those back in as extension types)

The candidates for removal are: Achieve, Claim, Reservation, Arrive, Travel

Achieve: Would used primarily to indicate that actor has achieved the
object. This is fairly specialized and can likely be safely removed
without impact.

Claim: Would be used to indicate that actor is claiming the object.
This is fairly specialized and can likely be safely removed without
impact.

Reservation, Arrive and Travel deal largely with Geo-location use
cases that are very broadly implemented but are currently not covered
by our user stories. That's quite interesting in itself -- geolocation
functions are ubiquitous to social platforms and yet none of our user
stories seem to reflect that fact. Hmmmm.....
