Having the metadata so immediately and prominently visible sure does
invite people to actually use it. Much metadata is never filled in. That
speaks in favour of keeping it.
Customers sometimes want rich text in the description field. Which
smells like abuse because of the prominent place. Which speaks in favour
of getting rid of it.
