You may want to take a look at http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/MediaObject/publish/MediaObject.html
 
Seems to have some relevance to the ongoing discussion of alt and metadata particularly as that conversation migrates, rather naturally, to things other than pictures.
 
cheers

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.
