I'm in, of course.

Can we spin off social software for this project?  Wikis are better as
records of conversations or whiteboards than for working together on a
shared purpose.

And what are we building, anyway?  An XHTML version of media RSS? 
Sequences to render in time?  Musicbrainz expressed in h* rather than
RDF?  A reblogging-friendly HTML template?

I added them to that page a while ago, though I think that the
comparison tables are out of sync.

As a general point, members of the XSPF group were extremely aware of
the patterns and history of media metadata.  The fields we chose, the
details of our definitions, and our abstractions were very deliberate.

Or rather, factored.  Some aspects of media metadata are about
chronologically updated documents, others are about specific media
types, others are about eCommerce.
