About this same issue I propose to change the labelling of CRMsoc from 
"Model for Social Documentation" to "Model for Social Phenomena" because 
we model the phenomena themselves, not the documentation about them. 
Also "social documentation" sounds surprising and somewhat unusual.

>> Hello,
>> Most of this is for Francesco and Vincent, but I had a small part of

>> with the added sentence in the end:
>> --------------------------------------------------------------------
>> What is CRMsoc?
>> CRMsoc is a formal ontology for integrating data about social 
>> phenomena and constructs that are of interest in the humanities and 
>> social science based on analysis of documentary evidence. The scope 
>> of CRMsoc is the following areas of analysis:
>>     • Characteristics of human beings, as individuals or groups
>>     • Social relations, including between people, between people and 
>> groups, and between groups
>>     • Rights and duties
>>     • Economic activities, including relations between people and 
>> things, such as financial transactions leading to ownership
>>     • Plans, including expressing proposed activities and legislation
>>     • Evaluations, including assessing risks and estimating the value 
>> of things
>> CRMsoc uses and extends the CIDOC CRM (ISO21127): a general ontology 
>> of human activity, things and events happening in space-time. It uses 
>> the same encoding-neutral formalism of knowledge representation 
>> (“data model” in the sense of computer science) as the CIDOC CRM, 
>> which can be implemented in RDFS, OWL, in an RDBMS and in other forms 
>> of encoding.
>> --------------
>> CRMsoc is currently in active development and we welcome comments and 
>> contributions to it.
