intelligent metadata extraction and tagging

A web search engine crawler could use the same algorithms found in some commercial metadata generation products to intelligently extract metadata (interpolating such things as seat time for the learning object, intended audience, etc.). This metadata would then be available to search against and display in results through the "advanced search" function. And it could be submitted to a Learning Registry sandbox as a proposed new object for cataloguing.
