Description (last modified by curtis)

Many third-party formats contain "proprietary" metadata -- information of a legacy nature, unused fields, and other "cruft" that is not necessary or even desirable to preserve as dedicated OME-XML fields.

Nonetheless, for completeness, we should store these fields in OME-XML as an appendix of "original metadata," similar to the original metadata Hashtable (i.e., as key/value string pairs using the original format's field naming scheme), using a custom ST called OriginalMetadata with fields name and value of type string. Instances of OriginalMetadata should be placed beneath an Image under CustomAttributes. The SemanticType definition for OriginalMetadata must also be included in any OME-XML block that uses the ST.
