[Esip-dds] An example for mapping a document to the data life cycle model

Hi Anne,

Your document does a good job of covering the recommendations and considerations in the document you looked at.  What isn't clear to me is how well the draft framework will capture issues needing research and identification of paths forward.  However, I can't really tell whether that is an issue with the framework or an issue with the particular document you reviewed (which aside from a comment about the need for "incentives" really did not appear to talk about gaps other than funding and awareness).  Perhaps we need to have one or two more documents mapped before we'll be able to tell?

What I am thinking about is whether obvious gaps from a few years ago (e.g., like the need for data identifiers or data citation) would ever have appeared in the framework as currently mapped, presuming those topics had been discussed in a mapped document. 

In other words, it isn't yet clear to me how easy or hard it will be to pull out gaps using the framework.

As an aside it would be interesting to find out if any of the recommendations from this particular document have been implemented…
