Sorry, I shouldn’t rely on jargon!

I mean that both ends (the user and the website) need to have implemented it in order for personalisation to work, and neither has motivation to implement it until the other has.

I think in how it is phrased at the moment means that applying the right meta-data is a pass. However, if the user then activates the customisation the site would fall apart if the developers haven’t also developed the layout to adapt to the icons and changing options.

That is where the real effort comes in: creating and testing the various layout connotations.

That is why I’m interested in examples of added icons and layout changes on real websites.
