In the 44th joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 37th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, following the decision to import FRBR deprecated classes, F51 Pursuit and F52 Name Use Activity, to CRMsoc, the sig reviewed properties R45 assigned to (was assigned by) [D:F52,R:E1] and R63 named (was named by)[D:E52, R:E1] and decided that they should also be imported in CRMsoc.
HW: FB is to rename the classes and properties according to the CRMsoc conventions.
HW: FB,RS to check the scope notes of the rest of the properties for consistency with the CRMsoc (naming conventions and relevance). TV is to proofread.
Also the sig decided that classes and properties will only be assigned number identifiers from the official published version and on. Until then, numbers will be arbitrarily assigned and will be subject to change.

In the 50th joint meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and SO/TC46/SC4/WG9; 43nd FRBR – CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, GB gave an outline of this issue. F51 and F52 have been deprecated in LRMoo and were supposed to be introduced to CRmsoc. It is important that ongoing work on CRMsoc does not create conflict with these classes –that’s not so much the case with F51 Pursuit but F52 Nomen Use Activity could cause frictions (see. how Appellations go through Institutional Facts in CRmsoc), in which case they should be put somewhere else.
Outcome of discussions: It is acknowledged that the decision to move F51 and F52 out of LRMoo and into CRMsoc was a hasty one. The issue cannot be resolved unless the scope and classes/properties of CRMsoc are clearly defined. They can be reintroduced to LRMoo with the indication that they are intended for a different model.
In the 51st CIDOC CRM & 44th FRBRoo SIG meeting, PR proposed that even though F51 Pursuit and F52 Name Use Activity conceptually do not belong to LRMoo, they should be kept there until a more suitable extension is found that can host them. They should be marked as *deprecated in the near future*, along the lines of R34 has validity period.
Decision: discuss in a separate issue what changes F51/F52 should undergo to be admitted there.
