Change standard directory metadata filename? [was Re: .well-known]

The standard directory metadata filename is currently specified in 
section 5.4 as "metadata.json"
http://w3c.github.io/csvw/syntax/#standard-directory-metadata
This is a pretty generic name that someone may want to use for other 
purposes.  To reduce the potential for a collision, how about changing 
this to something that is more CSVW specific, such as "csv-metadata.json"?

A google search for "metadata.json" shows 55,800 hits, while a search 
for "csv-metadata.json" shows only 22 hits, and all but maybe one of 
those pertain to this CSVW work.

Thanks,
David Booth
