Metadata Authoring Tools

Interesting discussion taking place on web4lib about metadata authoring tools to be used with various Digital Asset Management Sytems (DAMS). I know Yale is planning to use XMetaL with FEDORA, but it's interesting to see what others are doing. Winona Salesky at the University of Vermont, for instance, is using W3C-compliant XForms with an open-source eXist database, about which she provides details in her blog. And she cites Matt Zumwalt's usage of MODS XForms in a FEDORA repository, as noted by Peter Feston.
