Dear Core DMG,

A question has arisen as to how one might link to raw data sets from a CIF containing the results of processing that data. One simple solution is to treat the raw data as a publication, and therefore include it in the _citation loop. However, given that raw data is machine-actionable, in the interests of smooth interoperability we should treat it specially and try to provide as much information as would be necessary for software to reproduce the data reduction and processing steps from the raw data.  I therefore propose creating a separate category ("_audit_raw"?) which we would populate in the fullness of time with information to allow this automatic reprocessing to take place. Currently we could include DOI in this category, but other fields will require some serious consultation with the new CommData commission.

Any thoughts/objections?
