I have read the paper and agree with the author, developing a standard
nomenclature for metadata would be a very difficult task.  Getting folks to
use it would border on the impossible.

That being said, I still have my doubts about the usefulness of most of the
metadata.  (Even after a long discussion with Chris on the subject.) Like
other information, just because we have it doesn't mean we need to keep it.
