I must admit I've only used this as a human-readable tool. That is, I use
it as a hint on how to name element types and attributes. I don't
actually, say, link to the GILS BSR RDF schema in my models. That's why I
missed the errors.
I still think it's somewhat valuable for the prose descriptions. Len
pointed out that many of the descriptions themselves are terse, but I've
found that they tend to fill up a bit if you look at several related terms
and piece together the description.
The intent of the BSR, which is after all still *far* from complete, is to
have definitions comprehensive enough for its authoritative purpose.

Sounds that way. Oh well. Soon enough, I hope.
I do know that UN/CEFACT/ebXML, CEN/ISSS, and DISA all have an eye on
BSR, so it's still an important project to watch.
