We outline the architecture of a modular Trust Layer that can be superimposed to generic semantic Web-style metadata generation facilities. Also, we propose an experimental setting to generate and validate trust assertions on classification metadata generated by different tools (including our ClassBuilder) after a process of metadata standardization. Our experimentation is aimed at validating the role of our Trust Layer as a non-intrusive, user-centered quality improver for automatically generated metadata.
