Am I understanding correctly that for an OASIS-compliant implementation:

It is an RA policy decision to accept metadata beyond the OASIS-compliant
-An RA can refuse to accept additional metadata.  
-An RA can accept additional metadata (perhaps through an extension element
in its own form of the DTD.)   
-If an RA accepts additional metadata, it is the decision of the RA to
return the additional metadata from an I2C request.  
-Only an OASIS-compliant metadata record can be returned from an I2X
