[seek-dev] data

Out of curiosity, what exactly is the "SEEK requirement" for dataset use 
in analytical pipelines. For example, your email below seems to suggest 
detailed EML metadata and placement in a catalog service (EcoGrid), 
which involves placement in a SEEK-aware catalog system (Metacat or SRB, 
e.g.) that I am assuming are (or will be eventually) curated.

Are there other requirements? Are these or additional requirements 
captured somewhere?
