I think a lot of people assume that library metadata is all taken care  
of, nothing needs to be done. In a sense, within the closed library  
data silo that is true. There are very few people who feel that  
serious work is needed. Somehow we need to make that argument in a  
convincing way. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what would be convincing....
