The metadata elements you give are indeed now considered (at least the 
general categories they belong to) in the candidate requirement list, or 
in the issue list.
But of course the items there need further definition. Alan has accepted 
to do some investigation on this:

I think definitively you should collaborate together on that! Your OBI 
list is a good input. By the way, I think it should appear explicitly in 
the corresponding case description, shouldn't it?

Thanks for your input,
