[i18n review comment] Mention the need for metadata in multiple human languages #19

r12a
[raised by fsasaki]

Section 9.2 Metadata
http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-dwbp-20150625/#metadata

The section says "Best Practice 1: Provide metadata":
"Metadata must be provided for both human users and computer applications"

This best practice does not talk about metadata in multiple languages.
One should require that metadata is provided in the language of the user
at least.

The same comment holds for
"Best Practice 2: Provide descriptive metadata"
in the same section, and in section 9.14 on enrichment
http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-dwbp-20150625/#enrichment

There is
"Best Practice 3: Provide locale parameters metadata … Information about
locale parameters (date, time, and number formats, language) should be
described by metadata."
but this best practice does not talk about metadata in multiple languages.
