I will belatedly add to this that RLG is grappling with what I suspect are
the same issues in our own METS encoding trials -- are we doing this the
right way? making wise decisions? -- given all of the flexibility that the
schema provides. We would be (I would be!) interested in coordinating with
others on this effort (and are geographically close enough to both Berkeley
and Stanford that we might even be able to perch in the room instead of
peering into it!).

Best,

Merrilee
