I was wondering whether it would it be possible to add a source 
attribute to certain container semantic units/elements in the next 
versions of the premis data dictionary/object xml schema. We'd like to 
be able to record the names of the tools used to extract particular bits 
of metadata, as has been done in the Statistics New Zealand Prototype 
PREMIS Creation Tool ( I 
realise we could create a local schema to do it, but we'd prefer to use 
an official one if possible. Would this be useful to others too?
