Think of a paper listed at a scientific journal. All of this information
is on the web page in HTML, we're just proposing that they add the metadata.

Yes, that's correct, if you can do it with XMP for media files, go for
it, that's our recommendation. But if that data is going to be in the
HTML anyways (e.g. an abstract page for a scientific paper), then RDFa
also applies.

In general, the tools for XMP are quite a bit harder to use than those
for HTML.

Because we hand them a chunk of HTML they can copy-and-paste into their
HTML page, blog post, MySpace page, etc.. Much easier than anything I
know of for media files.
