- For objects of our preferred types (need to define these), we will maintain the bits and migrate the objects to new formats. If a migration is necessary for an interchange object, we will notify the primary repository both before and after migration occurs.
- For objects of non-preferred types, we will maintain the bits.
- We will not actively manage interchange objects (correct metadata errors, etc.). If we determine that a change to the object is advisable, we will pass this information on to the primary repository.
