The metadata should be ignored by the XSLT processor - I don't want it
emitted into the output stream whenever the template is run.  Finding a way
to express metadata is easy - it's finding one which is coherent with XSLT
that's hard.

Try RDF - see - as the official W3C metadata

As I understand it RDF allows you to create and embed metadata as a
structure of resource-property-value links, where in this case the
resources could be XSLT stylesheets and templates, the properties could
be parameter and return types, and the values XML Schemas and simple

Assuming that this is powerful enought to describe your required info,
the permitted and "understood" links could then be formalised using the
related RDF Schema technology.
