Hi, folks-

All this talk about the "WPD:" namespace reminded me that the 
designation itself is a bit strange. I don't remember exactly why we 
decided to use that prefix (it was probably some quirk of mine), but 
before we go too much further... maybe we should change it to something 
a bit less opaque, so we don't have to explain it to people?

We have the "Meta:" namespace prefix available, and that seems a bit 
more intuitive.

At the risk of starting a naming debate... what would people think about 
changing "WPD:" pages to "Meta:" (with a redirect)?
