Metadata is basically what RDF does: Describes a resource. In the case of 
Ogg files; metadata would describe the media [resource] in the Ogg 

Notably a description can be many things. Technical aspects (such as 
quality, aspect ratio, bitrate, software used to create the file, ...) are 
machine-metadata whilst media information (such as artist, composer, 
director, record label, musicans, ...) would be human-metadata.
