Before this conversation goes too far down this road, Adam, are you
aware of schema.org, RDFa, and embedded JSON-LD? If not, you will want
to look into it as folks have already been working on this problem for
10+ years and have stuff deployed that the search engines are indexing
today (see the examples):

http://schema.org/CreativeWork

The only thing that's missing is a DID and a digital signature on the
content, which we'll be able to provide in a compatible way via the
Verifiable Claims work.
