What does MARC mean to you?

Ok, so maybe today isn't the best day to write anything on my blog because people may take it the wrong way (hint: look at the date), but this is a message to the librarians out there (or anyone with a passionate interest in anything MARC, which I really think only a librarian can be) ;

In the new framework I'm creating for the National Library of Australia (which will be open-source, will be all XML/XSLT goodness, will be Topic maps driven and will have support for MARC, docBook, RSS/Atom feeds and a whole lot of other things) I'm trying to construct a simple ontology for converting MARC into Topic maps. Now, I've got a somewhat short list of stuff that I find interesting in pulling stuff out of MARC. If anybody would like to have a look and suggest to me what other stuff of importance they would like the default framework to support, let me know, either in comments here (I'll come back here always to check) or by mail. The current file is here.

Alex, what's the syntax you use in the ontology.xml file? I've never seen it before.

It's my own poison that is kind of a semantically rich Topic Mapsy thingy bobbie. If my XPF projects ever takes off (which it looks like it just might) I may even go as far as to document it. :)
