Maybe not perfect, but much better.  OTOH, how about this?

    VisibleMetadata: Metadata is more effective when it is directly tied 
to user-visible data. Invisible metadata which are tied directly to the 
content are in some circumstances difficult to maintain by authors and 
in others susceptible to be misused by spammers. Visible metadata is 
preferrable where applicable, but invisible metadata is perfectly 
acceptable in cases where there is a reasonable expectation of 
maintenance and misuse is unlikely.
