      Description

      Many have wished for the flexibility of DSpace's operable metadata infrastructure, which is specific to Item, to be available in other types such as Community and Collection. Support for operable metadata should be pushed down from Item to DSpaceObject so that all DSOs can use it.

      I recognize that there are a number of other ways in which DSpace's metadata support could be generalized, but I think that it's useful to separate out this aspect, as it is in some ways foundational to much of the other work that has been proposed, and could be done quickly and with minimal disruption of other code.
