Dear Mark:

Here are my comments on DatasetDM and CubeDM, regarding its use for EPNcore 2.0:

1/ Proposition of an extension of BaseTarget as ResolvedTarget
In addition to and Target.objectClass, we could have: 
- ResolvedTarget.regionName (for a planet, it would be: surface, atmosphere, interior…)
- ResolvedTarget.elementName (for a planet, it would be a named crater; for the Sun, a named (id) active region) 
- ResolvedTarget.elementClass (for a planet surface, it would be "crater" or "mons"; for the sun, "active region", "sunspot") 
	For planetary surfaces, the following feature classes could be used:
	For other applications, lists may have been compiled or not: this could be a nice work package for the Europlanet project. 
I'm not sure we can use BaseTarget.position for moving target such as a planet. How ever, it could be interesting to have  
- ResolvedTarget.elementPosition (an STC Position in bodyrc for planets) 

Further more, we have an already defined list for Target.objectClass in EPNcore:
asteroid, dwarf_planet, planet, satellite, comet, exoplanet, interplanetary_medium, ring, sample, sky, spacecraft, spacejunk, star
