The proposed solution is RDF + Dublin Core. Has anybody looked into supporting IEEE LOM, the Learning Object Metadata standard that I believe can incorporate Dublin Core? This is being adopted by key players in the e-learning world (IMS Global Learning, and SCORM), and would be valuable for the applications I am interested in.

Having just looked at the IEEE LOM page, I see they have XML and RDF bindings defined. The current view seems to be that you package a RDF or RDF/XML description of the content into the Ogg stream, with Dublin Core being a minimum feature set (Dublin Core certainly doesn't provide everything one might want). Handlers would most likely ignore or "dumb-down" relations they don't understand. In that case this would certainly work, but at the moment there is no clear plan (details like references between and into logical streams haven't really been considered as far as I can tell).
