Hello ,

i just recognized, that theere is apparently no agreement about whether to include the namespace 
prefix in the metadata or not.
i added two records using differents tagging.
will there be a decision on further versions of the protocol?

<dc:title>California letters of Lucius Fairchild</dc:title> <dc:description>Lucius Fairchild 
(1831-1896) left Madison, Wisconsin, for California in 1849 and remained in the West until 1858. On 
his return to Wisconsin, Fairchild carved out a remarkable career as a soldier-politician: serving 
in a Wisconsin regiment in the Civil War, winning election as governor in 1866, and then 
representing the United States abroad in a variety of diplomatic posts. California letters of Lucius 
Fairchild (1931) records his overland journey to California, gold prospecting from Calaveras County 
to Scott Valley, business partnership with Elijah Steele in farming, mining, and butchering in Scott 
Valley.</dc:description> <dc:type>text</dc:type> <dc:source>31-33125. Selected from the collections

				  <description>Now, more than ever, libraries are no longer the center of the information 
universe. While us librarians never truly had a monopoly on information, our 'market share', 
especially with the advent of globally networked computers, has dwindled considerably. Put another 
way, there are many more people and institutions providing information services today than even five 
years ago. Consequently, it behooves us to think more aggressively about marketing our information 
and knowledge products and services if we expect to be around in the future.</description>
