You're probably right, and the metadata is already getting pretty shipshape

I think it's better to have it be the explicit job of the website 
maintainer (really the person who "publishes" documents to the doc 
repository, so it could happen at that time) than have it be the implicit 
job of multiple other spec editors who don't necessarily track when a 
particular spec has changed.
