  1. I would like to see PBCore evolve into a feed-based structure, allowing natively more than one document to be distributed in a single request (without the need for other protocols or standards). I have previously suggested a wrapper XML element called pbcoreCollection that will allow multiple elements to be bundled inside of it. The full recommendation can be found at

  2. If your group has a need to capture contact information for people and entities such as pbcoreCreator, pbcoreContributor, and pbcorePublisher, I suggest a single element contactInfo in each container that accepts a complete, native vCard (.vcf) (virtual business card) as its payload. The copy and paste of a (.vcf) from the computer’s (e-mail) address book is much simpler than filling in many individual fields for address, phone, e-mail, and web page.

    The PRISM working group has adopted this technique for people listed in its pending PRISM Metadata for Images schema: creators, contributors, and peoplePictured.

    Contract this to IPTC Core which uses 9 of its 40 elements to capture the contact information for the Creator, or PLUS which uses 12 of is 85 element to capture the contact information for Licensor(s).
