It's unclear to me why you need both the "Metadata Type (See 3.2.1)" and the "Content Provided for Indexing" columns. Enhanced metadata, according to Table 3 on page 14, includes all of the components listed in the "Content Provided for Indexing" column in Table 5 on page 15 (with the exception of full text). Assuming that all content provided will be indexed, it seems like it would be simpler to: a) Keep the explanation of "basic" and "enhanced" metadata in Tables 1,2,3 and 4 on pages 13-15, b) Remove the "Metadata Type" column from Table 5 on page 15, and c) Rework the "Content Provided for Indexing" column to offer three options:  Basic metadata, Enhanced Metadata, and Full Text (with the option to pick one or multiple of these options).
