I love working with smart people. I went into the ICF schemas working group call with my set of gobbled-together proposals, and everybody seized on it and started breaking those ideas down into their separate pieces, using language with far more structure than my own words.
There were some excellent points made:
- What are the expectations of the “Display Claim” versus the actual claim in providing human-readable claim values? Is it reasonable (or even preferable) to define a claim value that is not human-readable and trust that the STS will be responsible for mapping that value to something useful?
- Is it expected that the selector will do a metadata discovery on each and every claim passed? I had never even thought of such a thing, so will have to learn more.
I will keep you up to date with the conversation, which is expected to continue on the working group mailing list this week. The mailing group is: http://groups.google.ca/group/icf-wg-schemas, I believe anyone can read, but you have to be an ICF member to participate. If you are keen to participate, let me know.
