[EP-tech] Abstract page - head meta elements


Does anyone know if anything makes use of the ‘eprints.XXX’ metadata elements in the <head> of an abstract page?

For example, here: http://eprints.whiterose.ac.uk/104420/ (view source).

There are 123 <meta name="eprints.creators_name" content="xxx" />.
Each also has a matching <meta name="eprints.creators_id" content="xxx" /> element – although only 3 of these have a value (so there are 120 with content="" ).
The creator names are also included as a meta ‘DC.creator’ field – so is there any use in exposing the creators name in the eprints.creators_name format – or could I combine the IDs (when they exist) into a field such as:
<meta name="eprints.creator" content="Salter, J. (orcid:0000-1234-5678-1234)" />.
For HTML5, there is a set of standard metadata names:
and advice on additional names:

The ‘eprints.XXX’ format does not appear on these pages – so should I (or we) be using them?
Any thoughts welcome!
