Not to channel  Udell too often in one day, but how is that different 
from HTML with metadata inserted as a side effect of CSS styling?  
Anyway, I'm definitely not disagreeing, this is a very useful approach.

So "metadata" is "content" transformed into a more conveniently 
machine-processable form?  OK, that does explain a lot of points that I 
wasn't understanding in your, or Dare's or Joshua's arguments.  It's 
not what I thought of as metadata, or what Doctorow is flaming.  I 
guess we need a meta-model of metadata to keep this all straight!
