I read the documentation to say that the agent roles in the <metsHdr>
are roles in connection with the METS file, not the digital object that
the METS file documents. Thus for example agent role "IPOWNER" means IP
owner of the METS file, not the digital object described by METS file.
Information about the IP owner for the digital object would go in the
rights MD section of the administrative MD.
Is that a correct reading of the standard?
