  I brought this up in the UI issues section of my presentation at the
meeting in france.  We need some way to include information about the
author of the document as well.  Perhaps this could be generalized down a
bit?  Something like:

@info { title="XYZ House Style" author="Bill Perry" copyright="GPLv2" }

Or just:

@info name=title value="XYZ House Style"
@info name=author value="Bill Perry"
@info name=copyright value="GPLv2"
