I too allude to METS and the Mets in my NASIG 2002 PPT presentation

"Seize the E!: The Eclectic Journal and Its Ramifications" which I
self-archived at

I subsequently wrote an article based on the presentation for the
official proceedings
which I've self-archived at

SUMMARY. In recent years, an increasing number of electronic journals
have embedded audio, video, and other multimedia within their
publication to augment their usefulness. In addition, some have further
access and use with a variety of "eclectic" features,
and content, such as advanced navigation; font, format, and display
modeling; personalization and customization options; and reader
In general, most cataloging records, however, do not reflect
such components, depriving users of the necessary information and
that could facilitate use. A variety of recommendations and options
are reviewed as possible solutions.
