re: re-using other properties
but feel this ship has already sailed - previous replies have been clear that BIBFRAME/LoC want to control the namespace.
I'm not sure we should let this one go quite so easily. Not re-using existing properties reducing a lot of the benefit and purpose of using a linked data model in the first place. I haven't seen any reasoning from LoC that I agree with about why they are
making this decision. And I think they've been very open to community opinion and input to date.
Does anyone else agree that this might be worth pushing harder against?
