More efficiency/reliability in Stage 2
- Reminder: "Stage 2" is application-specific (i.e., vocabulary-specific) processing of XML resources, after parsing and other processing common to all XML resources has already been done.
Stage 2 is about resource interoperability, not just about interchangeability. It's about how we can guarantee that everyone understands the resource in the same way.
- It's about the meaning of each name in a vocabulary .
- It's about the meaning of the data associated with each vocabulary name in each resource that uses the vocabulary.
It's about expectations: the resource creator's expectations about what will be understood by recipients of the resource, and the recipients' expectations about the kinds of things that a resource that uses a certain vocabulary can say.
