Okay, I get where you are coming from. Though there is something to be said for keeping meta-data together with the data it describes, and there is the benefit of being able to read the meta data (using head or similar) without parsing the entire file.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
