|Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)|
Nowadays there is discussion on the usefulness of the bundles layer within an item. This layer should be re-examined for its purpose.
This use case is actually loosely related to Structure - Describe Individual Bitstream within an Item , in that it may be possible to replace the idea of "bundles" with metadata on individual Bitstreams.
I've also related this to other use cases involving object relationships and object metadata. A "bundle" might be expressed as either a relationship between bitstreams or a type of bitstream (i.e. metadata field).
