The issue which came up in the meeting was that the ISO editors had 
altered the labels of some properties in the course of producing the 
2014 update to the standard, and this meant that we would have to alter 
our RDF identifiers to match.  So it is a change which is outside our 
control, which impacts on the utility of our Linked Data offering.

The extent to which we trust the stability of external frameworks is 
another whole discussion, but suffice it to say that, unless we can 
trust other peoples' identifiers, and use them, then there is no point 
whatsoever to this Linked Data idea. :-)
