Hate to sound like a broken record :D but OAI is a perfectly good protocol
for synchronizing large quantities of discrete metadata like bib records.
It's one way to address the stream-of-constant-updates problem and I'd much
rather have an OAI endpoint than a massive datafile any day. The RDF-ers
amonst you can use OAI-ORE. It's a well understood, easy to implement,
-standard- mechanism for this problem... Yet it seems so unpopular, and I
can't for the life of me figure out why :D
