RE: [higgins-dev] New version of IdAS doc available on wiki

I have been mulling over IP issues like this for a few days now...

Clearly we can't constrain the copyright/licensing headers (if any) of what
context providers will choose to return from ::getSchema. This is entirely
up to them. 

However, some of the work that you are doing may be reusable across the
entire class of LDAP-based context providers. Consider the case that a
specific LDAP schema returned from ::getSchema on a context provider imports
a HigginsLDAP.owl (that in turn imports higgins.owl)) that provides some of
the base LDAP oriented vocabulary. In this case HigginsLDAP.owl may well be
something that should be an intrinsic part of the Higgins project, and thus
be under EPL, etc.
