I find their definition of media resource to be a bit broad:

"A media resource is any physical or logical Resource that can be  
identified using a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), as defined by  
[RFC 3986]) , which has or is related to one or more media content  
types."

I also note that they don't include one of the metadata schemas for  
broadcast media: PBCore [1]. Are they only covering stored digital  
media?

This is something that we will definitely run into -- the content v.  
carrier question. At what point is something "media" rather than "not  
media"? And how do we create metadata where different carriers with  
the same content can be identified and used together? I think this is  
one of the big dilemmas of librarianship today.
