i think the workflow would be a very interesting topic to agree upon.
since it has a very limited scope. i would also not call it meta information
it is just application data in my mind and the application happens to be a
"workflow" application.

currently we (day software) model our workflow in a fashion that
is directly attached to the "document" (well, content really... ).

i think it should not be too difficult to model a nodetype that could
be directly attached as a mixin to a document or just refer to it.

i would be very interested in having a discussion thread to 
see if we can reach any consensus on a minimal "workflow" 
nodetype that we could use as an example workflow model 
in our applications... anybody interested?
