Yes, it conforms to the schema (though it was somewhat tortuous to get
there!). Not all resources populate all fields, and some entries are of
dubious quality, something that raises concerns for me about the curation of

It would know about ConeSearch and SIAP, but not yet about ADQL or SkyQuery.

Tom McGlynn can answer better than I can. But to first order, bandpass
information comes from the Spectral.Coverage metadata. The segregation
between images and catalogs comes from the ServiceType, and the distinction
between Observations and Objects comes from Type (catalog, archive).
