Subject: RE: [regrep] Presentations and questions

Excuse me, I did not ask the question.  I am a profession Librarian and Information Scientist, and know the difference.  

Let's please move on to some of the meatier questions that were asked at the conference, and leave the philosophical discussions for the time being :-)

I always saw a taxonomy as a classification schema, and a 
classification is in essence a association with a node of the taxonomy.

Taxonomy Node: Grains
Classification: Wheat associated with Grains

Joe is somewhat correct in saying that the difference is subtle, but 
only in the sense that many of us (myself included) get lazy and refer 
to a taxonomy as a classification.  I thing regrep gets around this by 
calling a taxonomy a "classification scheme".

ebXML Registry 3.0 will outline a way of providing a unique URI for 
objects via its new, mandatory HTTP interface.  This functionality is 
defined in the latest working drafts.
