Can you explain a bit more what exactly we gain with that ability, in  
terms of practical capabilities?  How would a hypothetical  
application treat two documents differently if they were otherwise  
identical, but one said "album-title" and the other "podcast-title"?

Everything else, I thought, was determined to be out of scope.  You

Has that since changed?
