Subject: Custom metadata fields

At present, many pages on OGL have pseudo-metadata like "nearest tube station" which has to be entered into the main text box. It would be advantageous to be able to define arbitrary extra metadata fields with unique names to which user-visible labels would be assigned, and which would subsequently appear in the edit page.

Should an arbitrary field subsequently be removed by a site maintainer, I would suggest that any data entered into nodes using it should be retained in the database, in case the maintainer changes their mind.

A challlenge will be: how to emit optional metadata fields as RDF. Whether this will need us to define and manage a namespace and DTD is part of it. Can we rely on the Semantic Web community, Dublin Core, foaf, moz, etc. to provide a catalogue of suitable taxonomies for everything we need? I think not.

I need to know what solution we intend for this, as otherwise there's NO WAY of mirroring the data.
