I would like to be able to relate the digital image in Lightroom with information about the original physical counter part (negatives, slides, prints that are scanned, VHS, etc.). I think this would move Lightroom toward a more complete image media catalog system.

add a modular with such things as original media type, size or format, color or B&W, archive volume title, archive location, memo field to transcribe writings on media or it's container, acquired from (who, what, when, how), etc.

This can be pretty easy to do with existing and custom metadata presets. The trick is automating the metadata creation, which is really the hardest part.

Look at the IPTC Extension view of the Metadata panel.
