Subject: RE: [docbook-tc] assembly metadata container

I like the supplement wrapper element.  It opens things up to provide things other than info if that becomes desirable.  I have a preference for supplement because I think that is what it is and, without becoming too much like the White Knight about it, I favor using as accurate a name as possible.
