Well certain metadata should be displayed in certain contexts.
e.g. sometimes version number is appropriate
e.g. sometimes an author name is appropriate
e.g. sometimes even an email address is appropriate

I think that it is the concern of stylesheet and sitemap authors
as to what to show and how to show it. They could even transform
some content to something else.

Deciding what to show on the forrest-site skin is different issue.

Only some elements please. For example, i do not want my email
address in there thanks.
