At the December 1, 2011 meeting of the Reference Information Model
Subcommittee, the members discussed the following topics:

1. TOPIC: Does the RIM approve of the proposed URN structure for naming
profiles, including the CAP 1.2 profiles? (Answer: Yes, the structure is as
where the items in brackets are replaced with the appropriate values. An
example is urn:oasis:names:tc:emergency:cap:1.2:profile:CAP-AU:1.0
This format follows a naming recommendation paper developed by Werner and
we will reference this format and the paper on a wiki page. For future
profiles, such as CAP 2.0, the addition of ?edxl?, for example ?edxl-cap?,
will be considered. Capitalized letters for the profile name can be used
for emphasis, although the URN standard is insensitive to capitalization.)

2. TOPIC: Should the optional extension capability in CAP have a
structured parameter naming convention in future? (Answer: Probably. This
can be considered for CAP 2.0. Similar to the ValueListURN, the name could
follow a policy for enabling globally unique names as a safer way to handle
extensions of specifications that are interoperable. The profiles
subcommittee can help address this for profiles.)

3. TOPIC: Could an ontology for EDXL terms be enabled in an easy-to-use
manner to allow emergency managers and their developers to more efficiently
and effectively use the EDXL terms in their web-based content? (Answer:
Yes. The ?Good Relations? vocabulary was cited as an example for how to do
this with cookbook-type templates for copy/pasting into web pages and then
simply changing the substantive content. The technique utilizes an
underlying ontology and RDFa. The use of a standardized vocabulary in this
way is both easy-to-use for developers and allows companies, such as in
this case Google, to extract the vocabulary to provide more meaningful
application content, such as tailored search results.)

4. TOPIC: What is the next step for advancing the Reference Information
Model? (Answer: Rex has a version in Enterprise Architect containing the
CAP 1.2 and basic outline structure for adding the additional
specifications. We can proceed to add the remaining specifications,
following the provided format.)
