Hi Mounir,

Agree! These meta extensions do appear to be an appropriate fit for the Web
Manifest.
However, am not sure how well the Manifest would be able to handle
dynamically changing values for these extensions.

Consider the use-case wherein, based on the location of the user, JavaScript
changes the value of the website-number meta extension to give a more
relevant contact phone number.
As a meta extension, this is easily achievable.
But would the content provider be able to change the values based on the
location via Manifest? (do pardon my lack of knowledge in this area)

Would appreciate your thoughts on the same.

Regards,
Arpita

It seems that those meta extensions would be good candidates for the Web
Manifest: http://w3c.github.io/manifest/
