      Description

      In the Bavaria test suite, PDFLib claims that the attached file is not a valid PDF/A-1b file, because "Property stRef:instanceID in document XMP requires scheme identifier" or "XMP type violation in stRef:instanceID" (They make both claims in Bavaria.xml).

      PDF-Tools considers the file to be correct. But according to http://www.pdflib.com/fileadmin/pdflib/pdf/pdfa/2009-05-04-Bavaria-report-on-PDFA-validation-accuracy.pdf they don't raise the correct alarm for XMP violations. The PDFLib xmp checker also considers the XMP to be correct.

      "6544a661-c065-11dc-854c-dd4f35453e8b" does not look like a valid URI to me although the regex mentioned at http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#appendix-B thinks it is.

      Maruan Sahyoun what do you get for that file? The Bavaria Testsuite is already 5 years old, so maybe Adobe/Callas have improved their product.

      (Another unreported error for that file is "xapGImg:height for xmp:Thumbnails in document XMP does not match the actual base64-encoded image data")
