Sounds perfect to me, though there are two RDF serializations to be
aware of: RDF/XML (and XMP is actually a constrained RDF/XML) and RDFa,
see http://wiki.creativecommons.org/RDFa

MP3 and OGG are the other obviously interesting targets, as you realize.

There is code for extracting all of these used in ccLookup (Python, so
presumably you'd have to rewrite, but the tests Nathan has been building
may be reusable).
