[whatwg] Ghosts from the past and the semantic Web

If the blog site allows users to use a nonstandard license, it should
support the metadata model you propose, i.e. it should provide a way to
inject that information in the HEAD.  However, when I post to a public
forum, I have to obey the forum's rules, which include subscribing to their
license in most cases.

Not workable, as this in the HEAD of the document and oftentimes we
simply can't expect users to be able to modify the head of the document
(widgets, blog engines where you can only modify the content of a blog
entry, etc...)
