I think that an help in defining of the requirements around
structured data, RDFa, metadata copy&paste, semantic links [1],etc
could came from the W3C document "Use Cases and Requirements
for Ontology and API for Media Object 1.0" [2]

Take the requirements listed from "r01" to "r13" and replace
the term "media objects" with "structured/linked data".
