As per http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Cougar/
I'd like to propose draft-daviel-metadata-link-00.txt
for consideration in upcoming versions.

The draft proposes a method of linking arbitrary metadata documents with
either HTML or arbitrary resources using existing HTML and HTTP elements,
and might be considered an intermediate step until the XML, PICS-ng, DSIG,
WebDAV etc. groups have evolved a workable solution for authenticated
metadata transport. 

The scheme addresses problems such as:
  Associating metadata with non-HTML resources - PDF, MPEG etc.
  Associating non-hyperlinked metadata with resources.
  Associating agent-derived metadata with HTML framesets, active HTML, etc.
  without bulking the resource. 

The scheme is described at http://vancouver-webpages.com/ml/

regards, Andrew Daviel
