I am repeating myself, but I hope that the feedback from Yves Savourel makes
clear that such information would be better in other metadata fields. If
someone wants to develop such an RFC, they would need to co-ordinate a lot
with others, to avoid a mess of relations between data categories in
different fields. But it seems that nobody is really pushing hard into this
direction anyway.
