Hi Bruce,

You would be surprised how complex the issue of metadata can be in case 
of OpenDocument. E.g. I recently talked to philologist researchers, who 
e.g. would like to annotate greek texts with meta data. We had a short 
discussion about meta data support in OpenDocument, which is different 
to your requirements. What I learned from that is, that we definitely 
need to do some fundamental research. As a researcher I'm sure you 
agree, that a broader approach is called for, given the depth of the 
issue. We should not rush this and focus on special cases (e.g. 
bibliography). I also believe that users of OpenDocument will appreciate 

Best regards,
