There are already many good ideas on the Gimp mailing list. They 
discussed an XML format for the meta data etc. which uses PNG to store 
the image data. That fits very good into the OASIS requirements 

The proposal should not be too much work, because the document and meta 
data specs are already done. We should propose this file format to the 
Gimp developers and if the want to adopt it I am sure that they will 
help to create the proposal.
