Dear Victor,

the intention of the WebStatement element is not to exclude the
possibility to embedd license data in XMP but rather to provide an
additional unchangable license description at some point on the Web to
which you can point to (if I understand it correctly).

The rationale of this element is nicely explained on the Creative
Commons site [1]  who encourage the embedding of creative commons
licences in XMP [2].
