Importing Picasa facetags to Bridge

Hi all

I ammigrating from Picasa to Bridge, and attempting to recover the many many many hours of work I spent on facetagging approx 100,000 photos. The Picasa facetags were written to xmp from within Picasa, facetag info is saved with the picture. 

Under "Properties" Bridge shows loads of metadata for a picture, under different headers IPCT, Video, Audio, .... The last header is "other" or "unprocessed" (I use a Dutch version so am guessing tab label in English), and some more metadata is shown here as code. In there I found the Picasa facetags labeled as mwg-rs or info on Region. So the facetags are in the metadata, but just not in a manner or place that I can use them as Keyword or Tag or Face in Bridge (or Lightroom for that matter). 

Does anybody have a solution for this?
