All OAI exchanged XML must validate against an XML schema. This tag
library appears to be described using DTDs and thus "isn't OAI 
(or perhaps more helpfully: can't be used for metadata exchange via OAI).

However, there is nothing to stop someone writing a schema for the
format(s) described by this tag library. Exchange of metadata using these 
tags would then be possible using OAI.
