Functional Requirements for Describing Agents

There is now a draft version of Functional Requirements for Describing Agents by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative - Agents Working Group. Looks it over and submit your comments.
This document aims to set out the requirements and the metadata elements needed for unambiguously describing OR identifying the agents associated with resources. Agent descriptions may be contained within DC metadata records, or linked to the DC metadata records for particular resources as an associated metadata description. It is not within the scope of this document to consider the issue of where agent descriptions should be located. The functional requirements set out in this document will form the basis for development of a core set of metadata elements for describing agents.
