[Tdwg-tag] Why we should not use LSID

Note that part of my concern about the use of concept when talking about 
classes/properties/data elements is that I more and more believe we will want 
to use ontology reasoners for uses other than software design, i.e. as part of 
what we currently consider data (taxon names, concepts, rank hierarchy, parts 
of organisms, properties of organisms, etc.). All these are ontological 
concepts, and efforts www.plantontology.org do use OWL to reason on them.

The SDD presentation (the one not held in EDI, attached) contained some 
examples how we might want to query our data - in ways that OWL-for-software-
design seems not to cover - and which using LSIDs would even prevent.

Please discuss:
