Thank you Ian, Hendrik,

I've added some quick notes to our roadmap here:
https://trello.com/c/VinbHQia/115-better-metadata-schema-support - please
feel free to comment or suggest edits. I think we also want to add support
to get popular schema's "off the shelf" so to speak. Will add this to the
agenda for the next product dev meeting. Do you have time to work on this
now/soon?  - I think we'd be happy to help comment / contribute to a spec.
