So basically it reinvents MARC-XML in RDF. I'm not an RDF expert,
but some points about the implementation:
1) it needs to use rdf:parseType instead of parseType; the RDF validator throws warnings about depricated usage.
2) it's unclear why it uses md:value; can someone give a reason why rdf:value would not be appropriate in this context.
3) it's unclear why there are two additional levels, e.g., md:data and md:RecordData; can someone give a reason why they exist.
