Well, the situation is likely more complex.

An interestingcollection of metadata-information can be found at:

I am rather too unfamiliar with metadata and xml, so I'll leave it to 
the experts to judge the information.

What did strike me though, is that when we speak of security - or more 
broadly about content management - there are a set of elements that need 
to be addressed. To quote:

So, the basic question is: can ODF represent/store the "where", "when", 
"what", "who" in a standardised format?
