AP 3.0.2 still has a lot of problems (or incompatibilities) in exporting metadata. I did some tests by exporting files from AP 3.0.2 and open them in other programs. These are the results:

Lightroom 2.6
Missing metadata in exported files are: label, IPTC subject code, date created, intellectual genre, rights usage terms. It does not matter if you export to JPG, TIFF or as master. This is true if you let AP write metadata to the exported files.
If you use sidecars in exporting masters from AP3 it is only date created that is missing.

CaptureOne 5.1.1
Exported master by AP3 with sidecars shows all metadata except color label.
Exported master without sidecars lacks intellectual genre, rights usage terms and color label.
Exported JPG lacks intellectual genre, rights usage terms and color label.
Exported TIFF lacks intellectual genre, rights usage terms and color label.

ExpressionMedia and PhotoMechanic still have problems to read metadata from AP3-exported files, the problem described by David Riecks still exists.

Additionally AP3 does not seem to allow working with metadata "Copyright Usage URL" and "category".

I have not looked specifically at those issues, but it may not be as simple as just blaming Apple. There can be subtle differences in XMP syntax that make the ball get dropped between applications. And it's not always clear who is dropping the ball. For instance, a blank IPTC Date Created field won't bother Bridge, but will make Photoshop ignire all embedded metadata in a file.

Go figure.

Hopefully they will get things figured out before too long.

Maybe not.  See my post in the topic regarding the future of Aperture. Sad
