I would say that data is the part of the activity state that should be
treated as an opaque blob by everybody who cannot interpret the file

Metadata is a structure of pairs of keyed values, some keys are

I don't think we can say that metadata or data are good or bad, both
are different aspects of the activity state and should be treated
equally because it's at the author's discretion to use one or another.
