I agree with Ted's proposal, but FWIW where metadata extraction is 
concerned it should not be considered a problem to process HTML as if it 
were an inert resource as well. Anyone setting metadata in script 
deserves to be ignored. Sure enough it's more costly than processing 
JSON, but inertness oughtn't be a reason — it can be specified.
