Thanks, Rufus. Very interesting.
One more question in this direction: How do you see the relation between
the datapackage standard and the "CSV on the Web" W3C standard to evolve
in the future? You're involved in the latter as well, right?
I would especially be interested in the meta data file
"datapackage.json" vs. the "*.csv-metadata.json" file from
http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-tabular-metadata-20150416/. Both look
similar but are still not quite the same. Are there any plans for
convergence regarding those?
