There are lots of "logical groups" with their own needs and demands. 
What I object to is a solution that addresses only one of these "logical
groups" and ignores the fact that there are others.

I haven't looked at it, but I think that metadata *is* a good solution
to this sort of problem.  If there's no technical flaws in your
proposal, and it's a good *general purpose* metadata solution, then I'd
probably be willing to support it.  One thing we might want to consider,
though, while we're at it, is that the Gnome folks are working out the
details of *their* metadata needs.  If we can find a way to be
compatible with whatever they come up with, that would be a Big Win all
