How about "Governance Realities", Chris ?  I don't think we ever came to a consensus about the differences between metadata in the Public Domain (versus the Private Sector).

I am making some progress on the empirical identification of {metadata stuff} though ...

  Hi all


      For the interest of Australian list members (and others) - Call
      for Presentations and Case Studies at "Meta 2011 - Business
      Realities and Implications". I'll only post this call twice (once
      more towards the end date for submissions as a reminder) so please
      don't consider it spam.


      Don't let the name fool you - realistically we're after
      presentations and case studies on any real and practical metadata
      implementations, especially in the Gov space but with an eye for
      the commercial market too (LOD and SemWeb guys - I'm looking at
      you here ;) ). Even a group offering from the W3 community would
      be awesome, and IG hat on for a second, a great way to push some
      E&O as always.


      If you've got something to share, or a great project you'd like to
      showcase, let us know! I have every faith that the W3 e-Gov, LOD
      and SemWeb IG and WG crowds will come through with some great
      offerings. And we don't mind if you are international - we'll be
      able to post case studies online, and will have a tweet-up and
      live blog happening as well - anything to spread the sweet eGov
      open data and web 3.0 word.


      Please pass on to any you may think would be intersted!


      Happy to answer any questions off list, or point you to the right
      people to talk to.
