>             Project: Commons CSV
>          Issue Type: Wish

> Since the dawn of days usage of the CSV format has been plagued by the lack of standardization.
Sure we've had RFC4180 but it stops short of defining many things that allows a consumer to
correctly interpret a CSV file.
> The [csvw|] is a fairly new standard from W3
which aims to fix all of this. It defines the format of a (basically the RFC4180) but in addition
defines how metadata for a CSV file should be conveyed.
> The csvw standard is a completed standard. It is not work-in-progress.
> Don't be fooled by its name: "CSV on the web" it applies equally so in the system-to-system
