Hi Fernando,

I'm doing most of the development work related to the MARCXML toolkit at LC.  Yes, the validation stylesheets are a draft and we are looking for input on the validation report.  I would not develop applications based on the validation stylesheet yet.  The other stylesheets related to conversion to other metadata formats are much more stable.  This discussion has been helpful by providing some interesting suggestions.  If you have any more questions feel free to contact me.

Thanks Richard for your suggestion; I'll take some time later to see how it 

I'm also trying to contact someone at LC who can clarify the status of these 
tools they are offering: if they are just a draft of what they are 
developing, or if we can build applications based on them. 

Any additional advice is welcome :)
