Just got wind of this JISC grant which may be of interest to list
members (note that would probably have to be as part of a consortium
if not already UK university staff):

----------------
JISC invites institutions to submit funding proposals for projects to:

         o develop interoperability demonstrators to help improve the
           efficiency and effectiveness with which research papers are
           deposited into repositories
         o develop, provide examples for, and a limited support
           facility for, a Data Audit Framework
         o implement a version of the 'Data Audit Framework'
           methodology in a range of institutions and subject areas

The deadline for receipt of proposals in response to this call is*
12*:*00 noon* on* Monday 14 January 2008*
Funding is available for projects starting from February 2008 for up to
12 months depending on the area of work. All projects must be complete
by March 2009.
--------------

Which for everyone else contains this reference to a suggested
solution to an aspect of the problem:

"A deposit engine converts the paper into a recognised open XML format
such as Open Document Format and generates suggestions for as much
metadata as possible from the clues available to it. "

Is a start, anyway. The document the quote is from was of course Word...
