I was in the process of verifying that it was ISYS when I got Clark's
email. I think putting together a baseline normalization library
would be very useful - for Corona and otherwise. There are some
elements which exist only for some formats, so it'd be a lowest common
denominator effort - a set of shared names and validated formats.

I contemplated running any piece of metadata that has date or time in it's name through the date parsing library in Corona to try and get xs:dateTime values for each of them. I haven't done so yet because I can't guarantee that all of them will be parseable. But perhaps the best way to figure out what the landscape looks like is to start trying and see what happens.
