OK agreed.

You missed out responding to this one. This is not top priority now but we may need this further down the road. Let me know if you plan to continue this action item (maybe at a later point in time).

Seems I missed your message to the list on this one, could you please send me the link again? It would be helpful if you could clarify what the "special magic" is so that we can estimate the effort/benefit factor. We should really try to stay within RDF.

Can you please be more specific on this? We would need real code examples that I can put into the changes proposal straight away so that we can see how it really looks like.

No, please don't wait with this one. We already need to use external vocabulary (such as dc:date or dc:title) as properties of EARL classes. We need to conclude pretty soon how we want to do this.

Thanks for the update on your action items.
