I think I definitely want an XMP implementation (or more to the point a
single, well-defined RDF schema -- I'm focusing on XMP, because CC has
already singled it out as a best-practice system). For me, the key issue
is to get a number of different formats to have interchangable metadata.

So it's better if one can use the more expressive and universal format
and figure out how to embed it. The support for native fields has more
to do with supporting existing documents and format-specific
applications that need them.
