A thread which began on this list as "Re: [tdwg-tag] Any TCS users with 
experiences to report?" was continued on the TDWG RDF Task Group email 
list.  The thread may have finally burned itself out, so if you are 
interested in reading a summary of the series of posts without the gory 
details, you can find it at 
http://code.google.com/p/tdwg-rdf/wiki/TCSthread .  The thread discussed 
the utility of several parts of the TDWG Ontology as a means for 
modeling taxon concepts and taxon names as RDF.  I will continue to 
summarize any additional posts that may go out to that list.
