I would also suggest a format for the types of properties.  Right now
there is a mix of camelCase, StudlyCaps, and under_scores.  I prefer
lowercased and underscored, which is also largely what we're using

I think we should probably use existing systems where they make sense.
Dublin Core is the most obvious of these, and we do use DC for certain

Can you do the bulk of this work on a separate branch until it's ready
to go in?  Such an invasive change I would prefer live on its own in
case we want to do another release in the meantime.  This will also give
people an opportunity to get client apps in line before we release it.
