Hi Olivier,

I think that this is the key point: what is important is not the format, but
the ontology.  Even in the absence of an implementation for the format,
we should make sure that new terms are not added in our control files without
having checked for prior art, and coordinate accordinlgy.

Is there a simple web page that lists the terms of ADMS.SW ?

Have a nice week-end,
