Re: hidden meta data and bolt on attributes

These are all fine examples.  I think the hidden metadata people fear is metadata that is both invisible to, and whose effects are invisible or not relevant to, the person or organization authoring the metadata.  That raises the strong risk that the metadata will not be right, be stale, pro-forma, or have other problems -- and the authoring point may well not notice.

People do notice if the response to their page goes up 30% or it doesn't render right :-)
