Hi Jonathan,

A couple of things I think I'd expect to see in this doc:

Work on metadata inside W3C
===========================
PICS (http://www.w3.org/PICS?, likely to be superseded by POWDER 
http://www.w3.org/2007/powder (hoping for PR in no more than 2 weeks now).

(I know you mention POWDER later so maybe this doesn't need to be added).

Relevant Protocols
==================

Note that EHL's discovery I-D is now at version 02 
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-hammer-discovery-02)

One might also include mention of voiD (http://rdfs.org/ns/void-guide)

Finally it might also be worth noting metaTXT (http://metatxt.org/). 
This has come out of an Irish mobile Web search engine/SEO company. As 
currently drafted they're looking at something very like robots.txt. 
They're aware of site-meta, POWDER et al and may well use some of that. 
They launched the WG at the big GSM congress in Barcelona last week. Who 
knows where it might go...

I dare say this could go on and on!

Cheers

Phil.
