Hi all,

in fullfillment of 
ACTION: Felix to specify Global 0 - due 15 August [recorded in 2], I
make a suggestion for

Global 0. A generic mechanism to represent global metadata


>The emotion markup must provide a generic mechanism for representing
global metadata.
>In order to facilitate communication between a producer and a consumer
>of emotional data with respect to application specific information, a
>generic metadata element must be supported. 
>Note: this mandatory requirement is a relatively unspecified

To fullfill this request, I suggest a tag named "meta" and make it an
OPTIONAL subtag of the "emotion" tag. It comes as a name-value pair. 
It has 
   a MANDATORY "set" attribute, that should be used to specify the
     possibble "name" values (analogous to the category "set"
   a MANDATORY "name" attribute to specifies the target 
   an OPTIONAL "value" (optional in order to easily express simple

Other optional attributes like "confidence" or "duration" can be used
with this tag.

This example illustrates how to describe that the speaker that was
surprised was with .3 confidence of Bavarian origin.

  <category set="myset" name="surprise"/>
  <meta set="myMetaTags" name="speakerOrigin" value="bavaria"

This example illustrates how to describe that an automatic
classification was performed by a GMM classifier.

  <category set="myset" name="surprise"/>
  <meta set="classifiers" name="gaussianMixtureModels"/>
