This issue highlights the fact, that the GBIF API does not enforce mandatory elements in the GBIF Metadata Schema. For example DataDescription. In the GBIF API, nothing is annotated as NotNull, whereas in the GBIF Metadata Schema, the fields name, url, format, and charset are all required. [] or [], do you have any opinions about tightly coupling the GBIF API to the GBIF Metadata Schema? After all, they are meant to be a mirror reflection of one another for some model objects.
