InterPro Ids in GOA association file? Is it needed?

Dear GO friends,

We have been discussing here at EBI whether we should include the 
InterProID in our association files so that users of this file could 
quickly deduce the exact InterProID source of the annotation.

At the moment we use GOA:interPro in the 6th column of the association 
file called DB:Reference. We also add to this column for manual 
annotation PUBMED:9058808, for other IEA annotations GOA:hamap, 
GOA:spkw, GOA:spec.

I understand that adding this information would expand the size of the 
association file we produce and slow down our release procedure. We are 
wondering whether this would be a hinderance and if indeed it is widely 
useful or not. Do most people prefer to apply the InterPro2go mapping to 
there datasets or are they using other computing means to link
UniProt AC->InterProID->GO:ID. If they were having difficulty with the 
latter we could produce UniProt AC->InterProID->GO:ID as an extra file 

We would very much like to know how this would affect GO Tools and GO
Consortium members that download our data and if it would be useful or 
not. Please feedback to us anything that you would consider an 
approvement to our services.

kind regards
Evelyn Camon
