ISSUE-199: Is dqv:QualityPolicy a subclass of dcterms:Standard?

Is dqv:QualityPolicy a subclass of dcterms:Standard?

Quality & Granularity Vocabulary
Raised by:
Antoine Isaac
Opened on:
It is unclear whether dqv:QualityPolicy will be subclass of dcterms:Standard
The wording in the Dublin Core specification ( is very open ("A basis for comparison; a reference point against which other things can be evaluated"), but the label is quite restrictive. At the time of discussion a majority of the group was ok with subclassing, but we prefer to sollicit public input before making a final decision.
