GDAL does not have any specific support for DIG35 metadata, which I hadn't
heard of before your email.  Skimming the document I see it is an XML based
format that can be stored in a variety of image file formats.

This could be passed through the GDAL metadata API in a couple of different
ways.  One is to flatten out each DIG35 metadata item into a seperate metadata
item in GDAL.  The other is to treat the whole DIG35 XML document as a single
metadata item.

I am not really planning on adding this for any of the formats in question,
but it shouldn't be all that different if needed.
