I agree, too. It has the additional advantage that there is more overlap 
between old browsers (who interpret part of the metadata that's in HTML 
already) and new browsers (who may interpret more of what's in HTML and 
also the manifest), and there's also more overlap between on-line 
browsing and standalone apps.
