Hi Julie b

I suggest you write up your functional requirements (that is, what information
you want to store, not necessarily how you want to tag it) and submit it as a
comment at:

Note: Requests to the JATS Standing Committee are far more likely to be
successful if they include real examples.

community I don't think we should necessarily nix it if it's deemed

the ability to identify changes, transformations, source-type, etc. would be
great additions to JATS metadata. It would be very useful in our systems to
identify content coming from a particular type of sourcebfor instance, if a
journal article was back converted from a PDF, we use a different tailored
schematron rule set. We manage this via an ingestion workflow system, but
having that metadata directly in the XML could be beneficial in easing this
