At the DSII BOF in Vancouver, Andy Maffei gave a list of potential work items.  Is there interest in pursuing any of them in the IETF?

Tom my memory, Andy raised this list of potential action items:

* Summarize existing schemes being used for PIDs

* Develop recommendations on a limiting number of PID schemes

* Define an "Interoperability API" for registering dataset identifiers (perhaps based on the EZID API)

* Specify a core set of metadata to be provided by all dataset (probably includes a number of dublin core attributes as well as a digital fingerprint)

* Specify a set of conventions for resolving PIDs associated with datasets.

In addition, there seems to be some overlap with the CDNI WG.  They are also considering some metadata issues; see, for example,  http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-cjlmw-cdni-metadata.  

Should the IETF specify conventions for paths of PIDs for data objects?  These might include location metadata, access policy, authentication methods, authentication credential, and so on.
