Loosely coupled metadata

Here's an interesting essay on loose sharing of metadata on the web. It describes communities that just happen to obey some metadata standard for no good reason, which turns out to be independently useful after a while. If and when the semantic web comes about on a more cohesive form, it will be as accumulation and condensation of this kind of metadata vapour.
This further supports what I wrote about metadata a year and a half ago.
