[tdwg-content] [tdwg-tag] taxonomic rank terms

Yes, I am also curious what the state of the various schemas and vocabs is after the recent TDWG meeting.
I have previously expressed what I considered a priority, to review the various overlapping standards, and then re-model, refine, align/map equivalences, etc, to clarify the situation.

This was something that was said may happen during/around the TDWG meeting.  Has this been achieved/started?

Hi Roger and others,
                        I know that the tdwg ontology effort is currently in a state of flux, but I have a specific question that perhaps someone can answer here.  What is or will be the fate of the vocabulary of rank terms at http://rs.tdwg.org/ontology/voc/TaxonRank?  The disclaimer at the top of the page includes that the http URIs of 'key concepts' will be maintained, but are these rank terms going to be preserved?  If so, will their URI's remain stable?  Are there plans to prune any out?
