Agreed 100%. I don't think anyone was suggesting that these lighter
approaches should in any way detract from the ability to make that kind of
statements. As I see it there is a need for something supplementary for
embedding inside documents that is very simple but more semweb-friendly than
existing HTML <meta>. In practice it would be good to be able to do this in
a 'View Source', copy, paste & modify way, nice and easy.

The modifying shouldn't need any great thought, ideally. A political bonus
would be that people that peep through the RDF keyhole wouldn't be scared
off by RDF/XML.
