yes, more. :->

This may go waaay beyond what you are thinking, but MBARI and others  
in marine science found the existing photo metadata capabilities were  
thoroughly insufficient for science purposes.  We developed a more  
extended set of metadata that we are storing in XMP for our photos;  
you can find this specification described at
   http://marinemetadata.org/community/teams/imagemd-censeam/censeammetadatastandard

Your comments would be welcome, and your adoption of as many of these  
fields as feasible would be even more pleasing.
