Since this is the developer list, a quick terminology reminder. 
As mentioned previously, I think it's very important for developers to
maintain a metadata vs. PROPS distinction:
We now have metadata (mostly user-visible, mostly for indexing purposes).
Tomas and I claim that the file format *also* needs document-level PROPS
which which work as defaults for lower-level PROPS.
In short, metadata is what goes in the new dialog. PROPS don't.
 If this were the user list, I wouldn't quibble about this at all. As
far as users are concerned, there *are* only one kind of file-level
properties: the ones they see in the File Properties dialog.
I just want to make sure that anyone doing development remembers the
metadata vs. PROPS distinction. Nobody else needs to know or care.
