The advantage of having recordmetadata in the record itself is that it
is also easily transfered via OAI-PMH and the protocols themselves do
not have to bother.

My feeling is that if they didn't find METS etc to be good enough,
it's going to be impossible to come up with something which is generic
rather than bibliographically oriented like MODS but still pleases
On the other hand, I can think of many many situations when I'd want
include metadata about the record but not merged with it.
For example my simple metadata schema and indexset at
But still have the possibility to request a different schema for the
My temptation is to propose metadata and metadataXML elements for
which contains a METS (??) record, using the same rule as recordData
recordXML for packing, but it's not very elegant.
