Just to kill a myth now:
     Not at all :) Both groups favor and like visible metadata: RDFa,  
eRDF, GRRDL.
     The differences are more in technological views.

The text is now:

     VisibleMetadata: Metadata is more effective when it is
     directly tied to user-visible data. Invisible metadata is
     often incorrect, out of date, or intentionally deceptive.
     For example, <a> is more trustworthy as a cross-reference
     than <link>. User-visible tags are more trustworthy than
     <meta> keywords.

What about:

     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.
