I don't know about it being commonly consumed, but in terms of
creation it's perhaps worth noting that Inkscape has a "Document
Metadata" dialogue. That dialogue includes a field for "Identifier"
which does end up in the file in that format. I use it to note the
canonical URL for each of my comic strips, in the hope that, one day,
something more useful might be made of this metadata by search
