Very good. I'm at my last point of investigation before I'll publish
what I've done so far. I'm currently implementing a facility to specify
merging behaviour for certain properties. Certain properties will simply
be overwritten (like pdf:Producer), while others will contribute
additional values (like dc:date).

Yes, I can serve as champion if noone else is found. But I have too much
going on already so I'm a bit hesitant to take on yet another
responsibility. So only, if necessary. I assume the prime candidate for
a sponsor is the XML Graphics PMC. How big is the currently active set
of people on PDFBox?
