I've not much experience with the iOS meta tags, so is there anything missing in W3C Widget's config.xml or in Moz's JSON?  

Would be cool if one could just do:  

<!-- gimme config in accepted format (xml or json) -->  
<meta config="/config">

That way, there is no need to repeat meta tags in every page... just repeat it once… or doing something like a fav.ico equivalent that is loaded automagically.     

… just random thoughts..
