If you *must* include "non-obvious" metadata, such as arbitrary variable/value pairs, then why not resort to putting them in *comments*?
Using `<!-- ... -->` is an obvious choice, and in my personal adaptation of Markdown I'm using `//` at the beginning of lines, but really any comments syntax from one of the major programming languages out there could be used.
Just remember: KISS!
