(Requirement) System supports multiple types of science metadata
The DataONE cyberinfrastructure should be able to support the range of science metadata types in common use.
Science metadata describes the data in ways that support discovery, understanding, and re-use of the data. There are multiple types of science metadata in common use, and so the system should support a range of metadata formats commensurate with the needs of the community.
**** Multiple formats of metadata can be stored in the DataONE system.
**** Multiple metadata formats are supported in the DataONE operations (e.g. search)
**** New metadata formats can be supported by the system
