Context of White Paper 3 The Data Reference Model (DRM) Version 2.0 had three components, Data Description, Data Context and Data Sharing It pushed details to Communities of Interest because they “knew best” It encapsulates but does not solve all pre-2006 problems with data representation and sharing In 2006 several Computer Science breakthroughs occurred which made DRM 2.0 obsolete: DRM 3.0 will have only two sections

But: you cannot use 1960-70s methods to do this, nor just XML! You also need better contractor support, some A-team members.
