A technical question: does a CSVW metadata file supposed to contain a 
particular string -- a 'magic number' perhaps -- that identifies it as 
being a CSVW file?   If the metadata file is discovered first -- such as 
through a web search -- then this would help prevent a non-CSVW JSON 
file that just happens to look like a CSVW metadata file from being 
erroneously interpreted as a CSVW metadata file.

I did not find the answer to this question when I looked in the spec, 
but maybe I looked in the wrong place.
