"""michel: there must be a syntax and associated semantics for that language. This is sufficient
mark: there needs to be some identity or denotation in the language; ('vanilla') xml and json are not FAIR, so should fail this test
*** can you (i) identify elements and (ii) make statements about them, and iii) is there a formally defined interpretation for that
-> HTML fails; PDF fails
-> that there are many users of the language
. acknowledged within your community
-> hard to prove.
. could we use google to query for your filetype (can't discriminate between different models)
-> has a media type
--> This SHOULD be stated as a IANA code [IANA-MT]
standardization of at least this listing process is a good measure of 'sharedness'
. that the language is extensible to a domain of interest
. you can define your own elements in accordance with the semantics of the language
gff3 is not in the IANA list -> what steps would the community need to execute to be listed here? cases like GFF, PDB are not broadly applicable
biopax -> is defined vnd.biopax.rdf+xml and built on rdf -> allows users to create new elements and relate them
jpg -> widely used, registered, but primarily for image content
pdf -> registered, enables users to create their own dictionary.""" ;

"""- The language must have a BNF (or other specification language)
- The URL resolves (accessible)
- The document has an IANA media-type (i.e. it is sufficiently widely-accepted and shared that it has been registered)
- The language can be arbitrarily extended (e.g. PDBml can be used to represent knowledge, but only about proteins)""" ;
