Metadata in WMS Capabilities / MetadataURL

Dear all,

Metadata about the WMS can be stored in the MetadataURL (metadata about the data) and Capabilities (service metadata). The metadata in the Capabilities / MetadataURL can be harvested and parsed by a catalogue service. I assume the definitions (and domainvalues) of the metadata elements or the "type" (like fgdc or tc211) has to be respected.

In the service metadata elements, I'm missing the ISO metadata core elements like metadata language and metadata standard (version)( service metadata). Does anybody know where these metadata elements can be stored?

With best regards,

Marcel de Rink

Would a Web Map Context document work for your needs? . If not, I will have to do some more research.
