Yes, I think that would definitely be worth having on the wiki. Right  
now there are three starter pages for those elements [1]. It might be  
worth adding a new page that interlinks with those pages to discuss  
the issues raised in this thread. This would include metadata issues,  
presentational issues, etc.

Take care,
Rob
