Hi david,

On the first one, i think the driving motivation is not so much the 
'survival' of meta-data, but the by broader need for the smooth 
interoperability between content management processes and localization 
processes and unambiguous interpretation of meta-data using in both 
guiding and reporting on the localization process. The latter is vital 
to assuring translation service levels as well as for curating 
translations as bi-text resources for future translation work.

i think the above might point more directly to the business benefits of 
using ITS.
