[Crm-sig] Issue: CRM compatibility

Nick makes some very useful points which I agree with entirely.


Another aspect of this might be to identify relevant *data standards* as
being CRM compliant, rather than information systems. This might then
support the development of a network of standards developed for specific
national circumstances and/or user communities at national level, which
can be used in specifying systems development, with the CRM as the
international glue which keeps systems developed under different
national standards sufficiently interoperable to promote cultural
information exchange and mash-ups.


As a parallel I would suggest that the CRM is currently equivalent to
the inscription of World Heritage Sites in the context of monument
protection: it is highly visible, widely supported and influential, but
actual protection and management of sites inscribed is undertaken in the
context of national law and policy.


Best wishes
