Subject: Re: call for vote

I vote as follows:

1. NO

Reason is that we cannot remove this section until all of its functionality is
covered by filter query proposal.
Please see my message:


and Len's response acknowledging the limitations:


2. No. Same reasons as No vote on (1)

3. YES

Team, I would like to emphasize that I have tried to work out these issues in a
constructive manner. It seems that there is no
recognition that the missing functionality is necessary. The missing
functionality is essential to many use cases
and many of those use cases are supported by other registry specifications.

I will be glad to change my vote to a Yes vote if we can have a
that allows queries based on dynamic metadata defines on RegistryObject (Slot,
Classification, Association, ExtrenalLink, ExternalIdentifier) as well as
filters on the static attributes of RegistryObject (id, name, description).

Note that the above condition for a Yes vote is much less than the list of
things I wanted to see improved. I have offered compromises
at every step but have regrettably not seen any reciprocity.
