I've nothing in contrary this wonderful proposal, even because in Debian
we have been fans of META files since the very beginning, requiring them
as per our internal policy.

Nevertheless, a paragraph like the above one IMO needs to be backed by
Gerd, as the author of findlib. I won't base a proposal like yours on
something which is still declared to be experimental.
