Summary of Issue: Optional components and the hint of metadata
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
\"1. ... that consumers can use, preferably machine-readable metadata.\"

this seems to suggest that users can already consume metadata today. are there any such tools widely available that take advantage of metadata? if so, what are they?

5. and 6. also talk about metadata...however fail to suggest, or even mention, any such metadata standard or format.

Proposed Change:
Either add hard information on metadata (e.g. currently available formats/vocabularies), or drop the whole metadata talk (including the little sentence in the intro)
