You're missing the point. With Google, you only get indexed the
metadata that they permit you to index. Period. It's the opposite of
open. Of course, they'll index any *document*, but the metadata is
completely closed. That's the point; it's a walled garden. The
semantic web is about completely open metadata, not a walled garden.
