This IVOA Note discusses several clarifications to the TAP protocol stack, i.e., to the ADQL dialect, the UWS job system, the VOSI metadata interfaces, and TAP itself. It also proposes a number of enhancements that might be incorporated in the next versions of the respective standards. The authors hope that the proposed text changes and additions can mature while in the relatively fluid note state to achieve a rapid and easy standards process later on. Further contributions to this text are most welcome.
