I like your original theorem metadata proposal better.

But I suppose one could follow your approach with an extra article that
adds names, if one needs names right now.

It may be right to wait for more field testing, that's up to you. Certainly
if I actually end up hacking up custom encoding/decoding schemes for
metadata, I'll keep the list informed.
