Strongly agree.  However, I note that you (and latterly, I) used
"metadata elements" to include <script> and <style>, when we
were discussing the wording of the ordering of <head> elements.
In retrospect, I am unconvinced that <script> and <style>
are metadata elements at all (and if they /are/ so defined,
then I would regard this as a category error).
