see the module SVG::Metadata released by Bryce and announced on this 
list (available in the archives, the discussion is from the last week)
this module includes a script, svg_validate.
basically, when Bryce prepares a release he run this script and all 
files passing it are considered valid and the others just discarded.
at this moment, those are the only methods to add metadata:
- use the svg_annotate script from the same package
- insert data yourself with copy/paste using your favorite text editor 
- use your own script

in a future release, Inkscape will be able to add metadata, but for now 
this feature is not yet available

for exactly what metadata is needed, see the Creative Commons website 
or some files already containing metadata (those from the current release)
