Hi Gregory,

Danny Ayers contacted me after he ran acrross the 2009 metadata page
that I put together on the the EWS PF Wiki.

He is interested in geo coords and copyright kind of data and a
simple, consistent API for accessing metadata via Javascript in HTML5.

So I made the new metadata page [1] on the HTML Wiki so that HTML
Working Group members who do not have access to the accessibility task
force Wiki can also contribute to a general page on metadata. I
notified the full working group of this and asked for contributions

It slipped my mind that we had used that same 2009 metadata info in
July 2010 for the  appendix to Steve's Doc.

Now it seems we have three pages with much of the same info.

Maybe we could:

1. Delete:
That page is for PF members only. Some of the links have rotted too.

2. Keep:
It is meant as an encompassing metadata  for all working group members
to have an opportunity to contribute metadata use cases. It is not
restricted to accessibility or meant as an appendix to another doc. I
have updated the links on that page so it doesn't have link rot.

3. Keep:
As it is accessibility specific and meant as an appendix to the text
alternative spec.

What do you think?
