   I'm confused as to why you don't like (a)...

i empathize w/ the authors of the tutorials who may not
wish to change their text.  there are enough rules and
regulations in the world (especially when you translate
your thoughts into software) that i am inclined to favor
approaches that extend the methods for collecting and
accessing metadata (i.e., learning to be more descriptive)
more than approaches that involve forcing conformity,
especially when it comes to codified thought other than
that which must be understood by the stupid computer.

whether or not the required change is a big deal in practice
is another matter entirely.  as is anything "in practice".
perhaps i'm weird (ok, i know i'm weird), but i would not
wish to put creative energy into a Work and then be told
post-facto that the effort must be redone due to limitations
in the audience.  i feel such a request shows disrespect.
