Dear all,

Just our $.02 on this:

- We think that the proposed "recipes" go up to the level of application 
modelling and should not be part of any Thing Description.

- When we make the semantic vocabularies too complex, we may endanger 
their adoption by IoT developers, who may not be so familiar with the 
semantic web.
