Larry, this is your issue but I had a thought that may help us move forward.
Why don't we look at your four bullet points through the RDF lens.

* Metadata model: what is the "data model" for typical metadata applications – 
the datatypes of the endpoints?
The model is RDF.  We recommend that all metadate be encoded as RDF.
Metadata in other formats e.g. RDDL, should be translatable into RDF, or 
encapsulated in a RDF wrapper.
* Metadata serialization: how can metadata be encoded in a representation system, 
be it RDF or something else
Metadata is serialized using standard RDF serialization.
* Metadata vocabularies:  what are appropriate vocabularies for describing various 
media objects and network services? What is the process by which new vocabularies 
can or should be developed, described, extended or changed?
There exist RDF vocabularies for several domains.  Others need to be created.
* Metadata linking: What are the various ways in which metadata can be associated 
with “data” or other resources? Link relationships, protocol elements, mechanisms 
for embedding metadata in various kinds of data?
I think this is issue 62: http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/group/track/issues/62

What do you think?  Make any sense?

All the best, Ashok
