VOResource 1.1 Next

Proposed changes and additions to VOResource. Changes would go to VOResource 1.2.

Force referenceURL to be http(s)

Various data providers get the reference URLs wrong (e.g., using plain domain names) or fail to give sensible values and are never reminded to put them in. The schema does not notice that because xs:anyURI is rather lenient (by necessity).

On the other hand, the having something a browser can in all likelihood deal with appears eminently useful. While that won't prevent 404s, just forcing referenceURL to start with https?:// would go a long way to ensure useful reference URLs.

Allow DOIs in sources

So far, we only define "bibcode" to give bibliographic sources. People can use DOIs as is, but that will only be interoperable when we say what they ought to put into format then. I'd say it should be DOI.
