A Disconnect Between FAIR Infrastructure Devs and Product Devs

Rory Macneil nails it:1

This seems to me to be a really important problem. In my experience a lot of the discussion about things like PIDs and controlled vocabularies seems to assume that these things just exist. But when you actually go to try to use them and make them usable in the context of tools that people use in research, that presents a whole additional series of challenges; I think oftentimes those challenges are overlooked or ignored or not even thought about by people who are doing work in PIDs and controlled vocabularies.
