It would be great to have an official RNG version of METS, but wouldn't
the lack of RNG versions of external schemas upon which METS relies limit
its usefulness? One could include data in official RNG for TEIHEADER and
EAD, for example, but not (to my knowledge at least) MODS, MARC, MIX,
METSRIGHTS, PREMIS, etc... for which only W3C schemas are available.
Am I correct, or is inclusion of external namespaces in different schema
*languages* not as much of a problem as I think it is?
