I realize I am not addressing all of the concerns that have been raised,
but I wonder if a way to move forward would be something like the
definition below:
A collection is a digital object which is identified by a PID and consists
of a set of digital objects with explicitly defined relationships that are
identified in explicitly defined ways.
It seems that for the machine actionability in particular, an explicit way
of identifying objects and understanding the relationship between them may
be more important than having a persistent identifier (especially once
those objects and the relationships between them are gathered in a way that
can be persistently identified). The definition above could reference a set
of currently understood ways of explicitly identifying or specifying
relationships among digital objects that anyone creating a collection could
use (and add to) in such a way that they would know their collections could
be aggregated.
