Subject: Motivation and proposal for oslc:archive property

In typical lifecycle management tools, resources are rarely deleted.  They instead are marked with such a state as not longer being "active" or "available", some refer to this state as being "archived".  By having a uniform way to express whether a resource is in this state or not, allows for a consistent way to build queries and solutions that federate information from various tools.

The term for being archived would be


and it would take a boolean value. If this property is absent then the resource is not archived.

This has a semantically different meaning than existing oslc:hidden [1], which indicates a hint as to whether the resource or property should be included in a UI.  oslc:archived would be used to express the state of a resource, an application may or may not decide to hide these in the UI.

I suggest this be included in Core 3 common vocabulary.
