Just to keep members informed, following Richard Tallent's email of 16 
August [1], I contacted Ryan Heaton at FamilySearch to check that he was 
amendable to (i) using well-known URIs from existing vocabularies such 
as Dublin Core, and (ii) using URIs defined on the fhiso.org domain.  He 
was happy with both.
