I can't say I disagree with much of what is stated in that message, but
it doesn't really counter what I'd written. I do find it telling that
the person that Dirk-Willem is answering in that message happens to be
Conal Tuohy, a friend of mine who happens to share a very similar
technical background as myself (and is a co-developer on the TM4J Topic
Maps engine, as well as also a Topic Maps expert).

We both value and actively work with metadata.

But enough said. I'd prefer that the @author tags remain, but as I
wrote in my first message, I didn't think it worth arguing with the
ASF over this.
