I was unable to read the replies to my post the other day because I
had to unsubscribe and resubscribed under another address and the
draconian list policies meant I had to wait on administrator approval.
I really think this list should not require approval for subscription.
I also think the archives should be public.
Anyway, it seems conversation mostly spilled over onto Kevin's blog.
For those that haven't seen it and might be interested:
Incidentally, some of the things I've complained about in the design
of MODS and MADS (most particularly the heavy reliance on often
optional attributes for important semantic content) are precisely
those things that conflict with an RDF representation (though this was
not why I was complaining).
