I support including this in Version 3 if we can do it. 
I don't see any issues with including the INSPIRE proposal as is.

Hi Ollie,
 
The only significant extension we’ve made to GeoSciML for INSPIRE is for 
geomorphology. I had assumed the inclusion of this would have to wait 
until version 4 but if you are still open to changes to v3 then maybe this 
could be considered.
 
What we have done is pretty simple as shown on the diagram below. We 
considered geomorphological features to be areal, either erosional or 
depositional, and thus types of GeologicFeature rather than GeologicUnit. 
Depositional features however have an optional relatedUnit association to 
a GeologicUnit to describe the unit formed in conjunction with the 
GeomorphologicalFeature (eg river terrace deposit related to a river 
terrace, a glacial outwash gravel related to an esker etc). 
GeomorphologicFeatures have two sub-types – natural and anthropogenic, as 
this was considered a significant enough distinction to warrant separate 
‘type’ vocabularies and in future might be extended with different 
properties (eg ‘purpose’ for anthropogenic). 
 
We thought also that ‘Geomorphological Unit’ should be removed from the 
vocabulary of GeologicUnit types, on the grounds described above that 
geomorphology is about surface features not the underlying materials.
 
Maybe we could discuss this in Edinburgh?
 
John

Hi all,
 
The continued discussions around various parts of GeoSciML v3 this close 
to Edinburgh indicate to me that we still have issues with v3, and I have 
stopped doing any work on the current v3 RC3 schemas.  Generating a new 
set of schemas at this point (eg, after finalising 
discussion/acceptance/modelling of Simon and Bruce’s suggestions) would 
take us almost right up to Edinburgh.  I realise that the v3 schemas have 
been a long time in gestation, but the testing of the RC1 and RC2 release 
candidates, and use of the GSMLv2 and O&Mv2 schemas in production 
environments have raised some valid points that needed addressing before 
final release of v3 .
 
I propose that the model discussions for v3 be halted once and for all at 
Edinburgh in 2 weeks time.  I will compose the model meeting agenda so 
that we draw a line under absolutely everything with the model at 
Edinburgh.  Any model changes not finalised at Edinburgh will be TOO LATE, 
so if you want issues dealt with, please submit fully modelled solutions 
to your issue immediately. 
 
Francois and I have a pretty good system for generating and checking 
schemas now (only editing the nillable tags on non-feature classes still 
takes up some time) and we could have new RC3 schemas done by the end of 
July.  The RC3 schemas will be designed to be the final release schemas 
for v3.0.0.
 
Cheers,
Ollie
