Hi Rebecca,
I just wanted to clarify our use of PREMIS & METS.  We actually only
have one techMD section for all the PREMIS data relating to a digital
file.  Multiple techMD sections are allowed in a single METS file when
elements from another schema are used (as in the third example
included with our profile, where MIX metadata is used to supplement
the PREMIS metadata), or if a different file is being described (if we
were to record technical metadata about derivative file formats, which
we aren't planning on doing).

I think maybe we have caused some confusion with the way we are
specifying and representing requirements in the the profile.  We are
parsing out discrete, element-level requirements rather than simply
stating a general requirement at the level of a schema, a strategy
customary for a number of registered profiles.  In short, we are
simply taking profiling to a finer degree of granularity.  But this
technique does not necessarily result in any additional <techMD>s in
the resulting METS instances.

I hope this makes more sense (and will seem a little less strange : ).
