[tdwg-content] Darwin Core Proposal - term content recommendations to comments

We have been musing about how to make it easy to mark up examples in
human-readable renditions, and how best to enable that in the RDF as
source. I think, Ramona, that the separate example usage annotations solve
multiple real problems that we have right now and align us well with how we
would like to manage Darwin Core in BCO. Thus, though it may not be
necessary for Darwin Core at this time, I think it will actually help us.
Thus, I would like to formally amend the original proposal. Specifically, I
would add a new attribute dwcattributes:example. I would add an instance of
this attribute for every example in every Darwin Core term. All examples
would be removed from the definitions and comments. The recommendations on
controlled vocabularies would still be moved consistently to the comments
as in the original proposal.
Given this proposed amendment, I'll change the end-date for commentary on
this proposal to 5 Mar 2015.
