if you watch how <meta>-Tags are (miss) used, I'm not sure, if they 
shouldn't be repoved from the HTML standard. They aren't read by any 
search engine (because they are _only_ miss-used), they have in most 
cases (always?) nothing to do with the content - everybody knows all 
this games about "how to get many hits with good <meta>s".. Currently 
they only exist to make the files bigegr and for the authors to think 
they are cool.
Is there any remaining practical use of <meta>?
