The Ontology Sig meeting was very constructuve and discussed as Arianna
wrote, the mapping of CIDOC CRM into TEI and the mapping of a concrete
TEI-document from Sebastian R. In the discussion of the latter mapping it
came clear to me that the CIDOC CRM lacked mecanisms for modelling
assymetric relations between persons. In the CIDOC-CRM sig we have
discussed this and a solution is found.
With respect to FRBRoo: FRBRoo can be seen as a plug-in module of the
CIDOC CRM or alternatively, some parts of the CRM are needed in the
FRNRoo. Thus if we can establish a clear and well defined relation
between CIDOC CRM and TEI, we have done a large part of the work on TEI
