[uf-discuss] using rel to point to remote meta-data resource for a
url identified resource

Dear list, this is my first post and I'm a little wet around the ears,
so please be gentle...
I am working on a project that requires that remote meta-data be
stored against resources that can be identified by a url - images,
etc. I am presently considering building a lightweight system that
would retrieve meta-data (formats to be decided) for these url
identified resources by using a different url and the rel attribute.
Perhaps an example would explain it better:
what is actually held at http://someurl/meta_data_about_photo_of_cow
is still up for debate.
Am I reinventing any wheels here (assuming that the meta-data itself
follows standards)? Would using rel in this way upset the microformats
community in any way? Anyone know of other ways to do this?
Many thanks in advance.
