Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

The user interface for indexable content should be structured and annotated/decorated to enable maximal

use by indexing / discovery services. Specific expressions of metadata in prescribed vocabularies should be supported

and administrative tools to configure and operate these expressions should be offered. Additionally, dissemination copies

should conform to indexing requirements, or copies made specifically available to indexers.
