Lots of discussions on standardization of data formats, lots of 
challenges there. One thing that has not been mentioned (I think) is the 
idea of standardizing responses from users about 1) uses of data and 2) 
limitations of data (files too big fits in here). Both of these are 
included in the MD_Usage object that is part of the ISO 19115 Standard 
included in GeoNetwork. Would be very cool to build into GeoNetwork the 
capability to accept user feedback about datasets and to associate that 
feedback with the appropriate datasets in the GeoNetwork catalog and to 
make it available to 1) data providers and 2) future users...

Seems straightforward,
