Is there any scope for including/enhancing the metadata for embedded content - 
or is the view that that should be embedded in the content itself?

eg Attribution - Graphic Artist/Photographer, Subject, Date Taken, Type of Image 
(Photograph), rights, I currently include this in the ALT text with the hope 
that it is displayed in the mouseover.  It would also be useful to be able to 
format this.

Though the information needs to be repeated  in the Title, to increase the 
likelihood that it works for everyone.

If there is no "additional information" title or alt text, it would be useful if 
the browser provides this feedback.

The use I am interested in, is for Theatre (which could include names of actors, 
role etc):
