I hope I got your attention, except that there is no right answer as to
what is metadata. :)

These are some of the things I would like to at least identify as things we
might be interested in....

BTW I think these are all metadata

1. Identifiers (xml:id)

<text:span xml:id="elias">Elias Torres was born in Nicaragua.</text:span>

2. Context (meta:about and meta:property)

<text:span meta:about"elias" xml:id="elias">Elias Torres was born in
  <text:span meta:property="ex:born">Nicaragua</text:span>.

3. In-line Content ("Nicaragua" which is in the content is metadata)

<text:span xml:id="elias">Elias Torres was born in
  <text:span meta:about"elias"

4. meta.xml (whatever is not already in the content.xml we put here.

      ... whatever ...

These are just for our discussion today.
