    How, exactly?

    Files by their nature are an assembly of metadata... So they want to write a system that creates a relationship between metadata and more metadata in order to somehow make it easier to find the file ? ...

    It sounds great on paper to add more information about a file, but in practise it will be no more useful than XPs comments (which nobody uses).

    You're end up with a situation like the Windows Registry in which you have thousands of entries which contain completely useless information, and then are forced to try and clear out the data without damaging anything.
