The metadata sounds like the existing parameter definitions just with
a different coat of paint. Sounds like you are advocating defining the
metadata directly on aprs.fi via the web interface. You define the
metadata currently via APRS with a few APRS messages sent to the
specific callsign. Do that once every few years to keep aprs.fi up to
date and you're there.
I'm game to hear different though... what about defining it on the
wiki where it can be discussed and documented rather than just in an
email? It's kind of out of the scope of what the reflector is about.
