Subject: Metadata elements

I've been trying to update the metadata section of the arch spec, in order to address the review input -- primarily comments along the lines that these topics are so weak they should either be redone or removed.
I have found a little architectural info here, and I am reworking that into a single topic. While doing so, I discovered that the following statement is incorrect:
"The metadata elements are implemented with the metadata domain specialization. ... The <metadata> element is a wrapper element that contains all the metadata elements." (I bolded the text that concerns me)
Not all of the elements in the metadata domain are in the <metadata> element.
The following elements are not available in the <metadata> element, but probably should be, since to me they are also metadata elements:

Is this a bug in the info model, or a bug in documentation? I think it's a bug in the info model, but not convinced it's big enough to fix in 1.2. In any case, we would need to keep the existing definitions in the topic and map prologs to maintain backward compatibility, the way we have done for the <metadata> elements in the map type.

What does the TC feel about this issue?
