            The team spent more than one hour to discuss the pros and cons of having an application controlled configuration file to override the schema-index and table_index to reflect the sequence of importance, making the more important schemas and tables appear first in the list. In the end, we decided it is really the data service provider's responsibility to give those index numbers. Although it could make Firefly looks bad displaying those lists without obvious importance sequence, but Firefly does not have the know-how and it could become a maintenance nightmare.

            I agree with everything Xiuqin Wu [X] said above as far as the overrides are concerned. After all that discussion, it seemed like the realistic use cases for overrides were fewer and fewer.

            However, I think there is value in proposing data-publisher-side metadata that would be useful to us, and in particular, it might be valuable to have something similar to "principal" (a column attribute) but at the table, or even schema, level. I would propose to discuss this with other data providers at the IVOA meeting in May (and we can discuss this within IRSA before that as well).

            Reverting to "In Progress".
