[OAI-implementers] Requesting a part of a record possible with OAI-OMH?

Is it possible to offer/request only a part of a record with OAI-PMH?
For example: exists a way to request only the "dc:title" of an identifier?
I browsed the open archives web site and found only the verb
"GetRecord". In addition to offer or request a whole record, we would
like to offer or request only one element of a XML document stored in a
Requesting a whole record with DC information is no problem. But we are
thinking about using OAI-PMH to offer DDI-structured information on
social science surveys. DDI is an extensive description format (in XML)
with ca. 300 elements on surveys (http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/DDI/). For
some scenarios it would be more effective to offer/request only one
element or one element group of the xml document.
