Bernard,

I think it's important to think of bibliographic data with a broader 
scope than libraries, much less Bibframe. Bibliographic data is one of 
the more common types of data that is used widely in a variety of 
contexts. There are efforts around bib data that come out of publishing, 
out of "ad hoc" academic efforts, in retail, etc. If we don't think 
about this bigger world, libraries will end up once again in a silo that 
is of use only to libraries.

Note that W3C already sponsored an effort to encourage libraries to 
think of their data in the Web context [1]. I'm not sure that it has had 
that effect (yet). But we really should not create a new bibliographic 
framework without thinking about:

- how other communities might use the data libraries create
- how libraries might use the data that other communities create
- how library data can interact usefully with data created by other 
communities

It is my impression that the Zepheira vision tries to address these 
issues, but I'm not sure that the US library world is on board. Some 
non-US library communities, including the German, British and Swedish, 
seem to be heading more in that direction, as is Europeana.

I agree that we need ways for people to create data and manipulate data 
so that we can all experiment with these concepts. It needs to become 
more "real" in order for folks to grasp it. We also need more education 
in this area, and there is a group at Univ. of Washington who are 
requesting grants to develop training materials that can be used widely, 
including databases that can be searched and software that can be used 
by developers.
