For a very neutral term -- perhaps a little too neutral for my tastes --
we could use "secondary".  Or "alternative".   In both cases, I think
people would have to read further to get a sense of what it really

It would certainly be good, as Ivan says, to get a representative from
Adobe XMP into the group to help consider this and other RDF changes.
