search engines ror file

Interesting article! False information is a problem
with any self-authored information. 

But I think ROR can actually help solve a part of this

By encouraging websites to describe their objects ROR
provides additional data for search engines can
process (to check for consistancy of the information,
for example). Also, text on a webpage can refer to an
object in the ROR file for futher qualification. So
the more a search engine  understands about a website,
the less that website can fool the search engine. 

Also, ROR provides several objects that will generate
webs of "observational" metadata. For example the
Review object enables a site or blog owner to express
an opinion about a website, blog, blog entry, product,
service, etc. This kind of data can be very valuable,
not individually, but as a whole.
