Hello Geoffrey,

The crucial bit of metadata is a link to *what section of the spec is
actually tested*.

If someone writing a test cannot provide a link to  what is actually
being tested, the test is at best worthless and at worst, damaging.
But for the common case, a test author does know, they have the
relevant spec open as they write the test, so dropping in that link
is trivial to do.

Certainly there are other metadata items which are optional, but this
one is simple to provide and adds a lot of value.
