One of the things I want in a metadata dictionary is stability - I want
to make sure that the definitions don't change because someone is out
there editing them, or the definition I used when I created the data may
have changed by the time someone else tries to get the metadata. How do
you provide stability in a Wiki environment?
Also, I imagine people will be adding metadata from different ontologies
that may define the same terms differently. Any thoughts on how to deal
with merged ontologies in a Wiki environment?
