> All subclasses of {{ISOMetadata}} are currently synchronized. It probably doesn't have
significant impact on the JAR file size, since (in my understanding) adding a {{synchronized}}
keyword in the method signature just set a bit in a bitmask. However it may be a cause of
thread contention.
> Synchronization may not be necessary since the typical usage of metadata objects is:
> * Create the metadata object once in a single thread.
> * Declare the metadata as unmodifiable.
> * Allow any thread to read (but not set) the metadata properties.
> The potential contention, especially on metadata object shared by many other objects,
would be unfortunate. However profiling this not show significant bottleneck yet.
