To bring up a real use case:

Let's say that some time hence, because of widespread badly-formed webfont deployment, it becomes desirable to bundle a small example XHTML file, or XHTML fragment, in the metadata showing how to write webfont code, intending for this code to be used as a template by HTML editors such as Dreamweaver, or to help WordPress blogs with webfonts.

We use the key "sample-xhtml".

Should the value be entity-encoded or not?
