The goal of the Wasabi - or xesam project is to be an umbrella project for
things related to search and metadata specs. For example the metadata field
name spec is not related to searching in the strict sense. Also stuff like
tagging/emblems might fall partly under the xesam umbrella.
What we have done until now is work on the "xesam search specification",
what we have slowly started is the "xesam metadata spec", with time and if
it falls naturally there might be something on tagging/emblems too. The
"flagship product" will likely be the search spec though, but other things
might benefit from being in a consistent spec where it fits naturally into
the context of the other related specs.
