Version 0.1 assumes that any tags indicated in the configuration file
refer to child elements of the <metadata> element in an OAI
record. To be able to transform other portions of the record a distinction
may have to be made between child elements of the <metadata> element
and for example the <about> element. We are considering changes
in the configuration file so that such distincitons can be made.
Version 0.1 does not support changes to the record which introduce new elements.
The configuration file format will be elaborated further in order to support the expression of these kinds of changes.
Using XML as the format of the configuration file
XML could provide a flexible way in which to express the changes that should be made to a record,
making it easier to support the enhancements listed above.
