I think that in addition to having the URL for the current version of
METS ( http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/mets.xsd) it would be useful to
have a working URL for the current version labelled by the version number.
That is, http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/version13/mets.xsd should
lead to the 1.3 schema and not generate a 404 error, which it does
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/version11/mets.xsd (for v1.1) and
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/version12/mets.xsd (for v1.2) work.
Presumably, when we move to version 1.4,
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/version13/mets.xsd will come into
Is there a reason why
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/version13/mets.xsd will not exist
(presumably) until 1.4 becomes the official version? What do others think?
