This document sounds more like a declaration rather than a checklist for evaluating metadata standards, especially since I spotted a few instances of sweeping claims in there about metadata use. I think the preamble should be expanded so it really explains what this document is about.

I think that item #5 should be expanded to include reference to a maintenance community that responds in a timely fashion to creating updates as necessary. Too often libraries (and other institutions) wind up lagging behind in updating standards like these that need to be updated.

I realize that this comment is extremely last minute, considering the meeting is in less than an hour, but hopefully you will see it.

Perhaps one thing that could be addressed in the Checklist:
Metadata standards should include clear definitions.
(I'm fairly new to this metadata stuff, and maybe the idea of clear and concise definitions is something to be avoided for some reason unknown to me, but I find working with the BIBFRAME vocabulary to be sometimes maddening due to my lack of understanding of what each term should in fact represent.)
