This is a very interesting development for me and very well-timed. A
few months ago, I needed to begin adding metadata to other's blogs via
a WordPress plugin. I knew this would be temporary but I needed
something right away so I used something like this:

<meta name='botd:version' content='1.0.1' />
<meta name='botd:generator' content='WordPress' />
<meta name='botd:lang' content='' />
<meta name='botd:home' content='http://www.skeltoac.com/' />
<meta name='botd:name' content='Skeltoac' />
<meta name='botd:desc' content='The personal and impersonal journal of
Andy Skelton.' />

I suggest using a discreet element, perhaps <span
class="sitename">Doodz-R-Uz</span> that could be within or without the
"bookmark" anchor, to indicate the site name. "Generator" would be
optional. We might also define "founded" and "updated" dates as
