Wes, we know you like these technologies, and want to see us use them
- you don't need to bring them up every time we mention a graphing
problem. They're great candidates to consider integrating into the
metadata 2.0 design, as long as the dependencies for processing them
at runtime aren't too heavy.

However, they're not even *remotely* on the radar for problem solving
within the metadata 1.x framework, and there are still a lot of
problems we can resolve within that structure that will help inform
the metadata 2.0 design.
