“Two Paths to Interoperable Metadata” [1] proposed a model for metadata translation that offers substantial gains over models based on the current community standard, which usually involves an XSLT implementation. In this presentation, I will discuss implementation issues with the Semantic Equivalence Expression Language (Seel), our alternative to XSLT [2]. I will show how Seel eases the complex task of change management because it represents a more faithful computational model of the metadata translation problem.
