rss:enclosure can be used for thumbnail images, I suppose, without extending RSS.
I'm not sure about copyright info. Dublin Core has dcterms:license and dcterms:rightsHolder, so Open Search records could be extended with qualified Dublin Core to add this in. We do that on our feeds.
I'm not sure of any discussion about this. There was some documentation, in 2001, from CIMI applying Dublin Core to museums, with lots of examples - DC for exhibits, galleries, exhibitions etc. I have a hardcopy of that, but I think the electronic version has long snce vanished from the web. There's also the PNDS application profile, which can be applied to RSS:

OpenSearch seems to have some useful extensions, that might be a decent
model to work with.
Frankie and I have started playing with the idea of creating and
reality-checking a 'museum object' schema through Freebase (I'm miah, I
think Frankie is frankieroberto, sorry to dob you in, Frankie!) where
we've been playing with different aspects of information about museum
There's also SRU (the new Z39.50), which seems to be a nice halfway
point between OpenSearch and something like OAI and is useful cos
museums *always* want to add more fields, but that won't help if you're
looking at OpenSearch solutions.
Is the OpenSeach feed to be used for search/discoverability, or for full
re-presentation of collection items? That is, does it need just enough
information to direct people to the right full records/record set, or
would the resulting stream be pushed through a presentation layer into a
full browsing interface?
