I found Richard Jones' blog post proving an example of ho OAI-PMH quite helpful -- I've used OAI-PMH in a several system to synchronize/federate/replicate collections of metadata and/or content, and its helpful to see a direct example of how an approach to OAI-PMH can be mapped on to ResourceSync.
One issue I'm wondering about -- and haven't seen explicitly discussed in the spec is "rights expressions". When creating our OAI-PMH specs we found it useful to be able to communicate rights-expressions over the metadata (typically CC-0 or CC-By) at the set-level; and have also found it necessary (though somewhat awkward in OAI-PMH) to declare rights over the collection resources linked from the set, separately from the rights to the metadata.
For example… its been useful to be able to express that (a) this set of stuff is a collection of dissertations; (b) each dissertation is accompanied by, at minimum, DC metadata, available under CC-By; and (c) that the entire collection of dissertation objects is under CC-By-NC.
Within ResourceSync is there a recommended way of expressing rights over the resources listed as a whole and/or the metadata associated with those resources?
