It would be great to keep this alive, yes.

The word "of" in property names is pretty ugly imho, and "has" is 
redundant, so those changes get my support.

The original collaboration was pretty SWIG-y and public-process so I'm 
more than happy to see the vocab published under SWIG's umbrella. I look 
to W3C team for advice on any IP/copyright issues there, eg. what if 
anything we want to collect from those who participated in the original 
design discussions.
