Cleaned-up Re-exposed MODS Records

Tom and Chick found some errors with the re-exposed records, which we have consequently fixed.

1. Nesting of metadata, mods and about containers was incorrect.
2. Language codes versus language text was being too aggressively normalized (for OAIster it needs to be, for MODS best if not).
3. The about container needed a field included so that workflow on Tom and Chick's end could be streamlined.

This latter issue entailed Tom creating an Aquifer version of the provenance schema, currently hosted at:

The official provenance schema does not contain a field for .
I will be contacting Simeon Warner who still officially maintains the OAI protocol to look into making this change for the official schema.

Oh, and UM Lincoln records were fixed and added to, so there are 8 more records in the current batch of re-exposed records.
