   Uh, yeah, learned a few things since 2005. For example:

1) The tools WON'T save us.
2) Metadata should be visible.
3) Pave the cowpaths.
4) Authors are not always a reliable source of metadata.
5) Authors will enter even common attribute values incorrectly.

   There's a reason I haven't been pushing the |license| and |copyright|
attribute concepts continuously for the past two years...
