aloha, laura!

the valuable new information you are gathering at:


would benefit from the porting of what was proposed as an appendix to
SteveF's Alt Text Techniques document:


which was the designated place for info about automatic metadata 
retrieval and associations (which used to live in the HTML5 spec
itself, but which we agreed would be better handled as an appendix
to SteveF's Alt Text Techs document, which includes information on 
"Describing and Retrieving Photos Using RDF and HTTP" 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/photo-rdf/) and which also includes info 
about Scenarios for exposing Exchangeable Image File (EXIF), 
International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC), and Extensible 
Metadata Platform (XMP) images...

let me know if you would prefer for me to make the changes, but i think
that your new metadata page is a compliment to, and builds upon, the
info contained at:
