This point of view is was also brought up when discussing storing metadata
in a sidecar file vs. the header in context of BIDS. With a plain text file
the barriers to viewing and editing metadata are lower (there are more
editors that can do it), but having linked files means that you cannot copy
them individually. Would love to hear more opinions on the topic.
