There seem to be a number of strong viewpoints, expectations for  
social compliance as well as institutional commitment, and  
disagreements on the best suited technical avenues that I'm wondering  
whether this wouldn't be the stuff out of which a position paper could  
be distilled for e-Biosphere, with the aim of publishing it as a  
community paper in a journal later.

Maybe something along the lines of something like Hilse & Kothe,  
Implementing Persistent Identifiers (http://www.knaw.nl/ecpa/publ/pdf/2732.pdf 
) but focused on a comparison between a few alternatives for  
biodiversity informatics and their implementation and institutional  

Maybe that would help to better move the community forward in between  
those discussions?

Or is someone writing that already?
