Thanks a lot Federico for this email and sorry for the late reply.
I'll try to get some time to see how METS works on the next few days.
If this standard is compatible with ProofreadPage assumptions it would be very nice to
implement in the extension an API that would allow to do import/export in this format.

I've started my work at BEIC and yesterday I've had a sort of revelation:
their work on METS structural maps is the exact librarian equivalent of what we do at
Wikisource with ProofreadPage page transclusions. It's clear we can learn a lot
See yourself, this is a scan where every image was manually mapped to the structure of
pages, "chapters" (which are also OPAC entries) etc. on the left. Doesn't it
immediately make you think of the Index namespace and <pagelist /> tag?
All this is based on an open standard, METS, and its only required section, the
"structural map" (of the digital document).
Apparently, no other digital library does this job. BEIC and Wikisource may be the only
ones in the world and of course they don't share a standard. :( Even the BEIC viewer
is a local "hack" on top of ExLibris Primo, I/they don't know if there's
any free software for METS. I didn't find any mention of METS in "our
places" so I run to tell you all.
