    Hi, Robert.
    Thank you for your article. I am a member of the ISO committee for data quality (ISO 8000). ISO 8000-1 has simple data model that explicitly includes a data dictionary. The key points are:

    Data includes information about data provenance, data accuracy, and data completeness
    Data is coded using concepts in a data dictionary.
    Data conforms to a data specification.
    Data conforms to a formal syntax.
    A data specification specifies data requirements for coding data using concepts from a data dictionary.
    A data specification specifies preferred terminology for concepts in a data dictionary.
    A data specification specifies the use of a formal syntax.
    Data, data specifications, and data dictionaries use identifiers from an identification scheme.
