This is a key point, Phil, though I'd take the argument a little further.

'Propagating your metadata around the web' means putting it on to other people's websites. And ONIX is an effective way of distributing your data in bulk to some of the people who create very effective websites (eg the big retailers, social reading sites etc). And what I have been stressing in previous e-mails is that it must be simple for those people to take the data as it is distributed, in bulk, and integrate it -- using the same data model and semantics, but a different syntax -- into their web pages.

I think we also need to remember that ONIX was created as a B2B solution.  It was and is a way for publishers to send metadata to other members of the supply chain
