Subject: [humanmarkup] Base Schema - humanGroup

Here is a first take on:

Base Schema - humanGroup

This is an abstract complexType element which will take the attribute 
humlIdentifierAtts since it  applies to a particular characteristic 
of an human, to belong to communities. It does not use other 
elements. It may be used by other elements.

It is described/defined as two or more humans gathered together for a 
particular purpose. This gathering or grouping is not limited to 
immediate physical or digital presence in any particular environment 
at any particular time. Thus the concept of humanGroup transcends 
many traditional limitations of inlcusion, but it does require some 
additional qualifiers to be useful. It is the unit upon which the 
concept of community depends.

We have had fairly lengthy discussions arriving at this element as 
necessary in the Primary Base Schema, which mostly came about as a 
result of the discussion early in this sequential alphabetic process 
during our discussions on the element community and subsequently on 
the element of culture. However, it would be helpful if some of those 
discussions could be expanded upon for the purpose of documenting 
this element on its own. This is due largely to the fact that there 
may simply not be enough time to abstract those particular 
discussions from posts on other elements and notes from minutes of 
our meetings.

Thanks, any help is gratefully appreciated.
