The META element provides the generic syntax for adding metadata inside
HTML.  Note that you can have arbitrary serialized markup in the content
attribute value.

I'm not sure what "people at large" means, but I do think your opinion
is not very well informed. There is significant interest in a generic
syntax for adding metadata inside HTML. It's a lot of the same drive for
microformats, for all the folks who can't handle the centralized process
and who need the vocab modularity.
