It sounds like you're asking for specific schema guidelines. The job of 
this task force is not to specify one schema for everyone, but rather 
to enable people to use whatever schema fits their need within standard 

In your first example, I don't know of a schema for interacting with 
search engines and indexers. It might be worth defining one, but that 
would not be part of this particular group's mission.

In your second example, you probably want to use Dublin Core attributes 
(http://dublincore.org) to specify an author. I believe the Dublin Core 
attribute is Creator, with the fully-qualified RDF property 

Certainly, Dublin Core is not the only schema you can use, but it is a 
popular one for this type of basic document information.
