Hi all,

In our BP we mention the different types of metadata and we encourage to
publish the metadata both in machine-readable and human-readable formats.
However, I am not sure if the choice of how to make the metadata available
(embedded or as different file) is in our scope. I think this will depend
of the domain of data or data format.
