It depends on why this extension to META is needed. Any extension should
characterize the proposed content better before proposing a content model

Ah, good. I intended CDATA, not NAME. True, we could make it a
NOTATION, but as we have no place to declare NOTATIONs, the gain
is not too large.

As a notation it could be tied to an FPI which would be an improvement
over CDATA. We can declare notations in the DTD and we can specify
their associated FPIs in the sample SGML Open catalog. The HTML3.0 DTD
already employs notations for the STYLE element, so we should continue
in that direction.
