Might the enumeration of roles in the agent element of the METS header
benefit from a little elaboration?  They are fairly intuitive, but is it
useful to provide a list of options if they are not clearly defined?  Why
not just allow institutions to develop their own lists?  This is currently
possible through the use of the "OTHERROLE" attribute, but from the
standpoint of interoperability might be more productively accomadated by
allowing for an extension schema.
