for those of us working higher up in the stack, it would be pretty nice to 
have standard output. as you note in your email, incomplete or overcomplete 
is fine (allows for innovation and various approaches), but what is provided 
really should be consistent. this will allow us working on file 
managers/browsers/dialogs/etc to stop worrying a bit about what's under the 
hood. in other words: huzzah!

i strongly recommend other groups (beagle, tracker, etc) engage in this 
process so we can provide support for your systems in kde in a coherent 

in a dream world, i'd really like to see people from the macos spotlight team 
and whatever microsoft is working on ping'd so they have the opportunity to 
also come into agreement so our applications work everywhere even if we use 
the "native" systems on those platforms for metadata retrieval. anyone know 
people in these projects? (i know some people who most likely know people 
working on spotlight, but my microsoft contacts are near zero in this realm)
