That's very interesting, thank you, Leigh.

I wonder whether you plan to consider work carried out in the framework of
the Open Data Rights Language (ODRL) CG of W3C [1].

Also, do you plan to support the notion of "licence type"? This is being
used, e.g., in vocabularies like ADMS.SW [2] and the DCAT-AP (DCAT
Application Profile for EU data portals) [3].
