Subject: RE: [office] XMP XML:RDF Metadata

 Hi everyone,

   I tried to dial in yesterday and unfortunately couldn't get through. I'm sorry to have missed the call. It's unclear to me
exactly what is being proposed here. Is the metadata project still considered a work item of the TC? If the answer is yes, all work
must be done within the OASIS framework. I know the TC has several other very pressing issues to settle (accessibility, DRM,
formulas, etc.) so maybe the decision was made not to undertake this work item?
