  1. Hello, and thank you for this insightful post. Embedding preservation metadata is an innovative solution to a well-anticipated problem. Since this process will be altering the original file, do you foresee any problems this may cause in your program?
    I suppose that a condition for submission to the repository could be made that requires altering the file so that it can include embedded metadata, but I’m sure there would be some outcry that would include the words “file authenticity” or “integrity.” Do you anticipate this being an issue, or does the projected benefit of embedding preservation information trump most objections?

  2. Thanks for your comment.

    About authentication generally, please see: http://blog.law.cornell.edu/voxpop/2009/05/14/authentication-of-digital-repositories/. Unfortunately, it seems to be gone for the moment. I’m told it will be back soon.

    In any case, the short answers are “yes”, “yes”, and “yes”. The longer answer requires a new post!
