    Dear TDWG GUID and TAG members,

    The TDWG Infrastructure Project (TIP) Team is putting forward a 
proposal to make Life Science Identifiers (LSID) more interoperable with 
standard World Wide Web and Semantic Web applications. In that proposal 
we recommend the use of LSID HTTP proxies to simplify the resolution 
process for tools that do not yet handle LSIDs directly.

    The proposal is available at 

    We would like to ask you to please review the proposal and give us 
feedback. Comments can be added directly to the wiki page above or sent 
to either the tdwg-tag or tdwg-guid mailing list. I will move the 
comments from the mailing lists to the wiki page as they become available.

    When we reach consensus on the relevance and content of the 
proposal, we intend to include it on the TDWG LSID Applicability 
Statement and move forward to ratify it as a TDWG standard.

    We really appreciate your feedback.

    Best regards,

Ricardo Pereira
