  What is the logic for use of CGI_Term as the type for 
RockMaterial.lithology or for FabricDescription.fabricType.  In both 
cases the property is asserting a categorization of the described thing, 
and I can't think of how a value qualifer fits. Did I miss some 
discussion of this somewhere along the line?

I suggest that these should be byReference (hrefs to controlled 
Vocabulary concepts), analogous to GeologicUnit.geologicUnitType, 
MaterialRelation.materialRelationshipType, or
