But when you and I last spoke of this, I was disappointed to learn
  that there were no plans to put default information in that meta-data,
  like the information that is provided in those alias names.
So as I understood, the meta-data would be blank by default.
You demonstrated that meta-data does work - but you had to provide
  that information from your own list.

Am I mistaken? Would such information be available by default?
