Ability to perform collections-level (transcending the bare file level) manipulation on data assets held in an EFSS.
Adding this feature allows users to retain metadata (produced by, e.g., instruments) as they ingest their files into the Mesh, and later on to connect their data collections to 3rd party systems (e.g., archives) enriched by metadata.
Examples real users
PARADISEC hosts files that aren't meaningfully searchable by filename; they rely on metadata to search and serve out files. Therefore if ScienceMesh users want access to PARADISEC data through a share/ocm type approach, Mesh nodes need to be able to understand collections and ro-crates and let user manipulate them (search, inspect)
Merging Describo-online with EFSS systems through cs3api; letting ScieboRDS invoke describo to generate RO-crates and then hand off the crate back to ScieboRDS
