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!
