You have a great way with words. I love the idea of a metator...an idea that should have happened years ago -- that would move data management to a professional level as some in DAMA have been proposing for a long time.

Isn't 'metator' a guy who dodges the bull? We could probably all use a person like that in our enterprises...

Seriously though, I think Mary has the right idea: finally, data will begin to be treated like water and the pipes, hoses, taps, valves and guages (i.e the 'technology' of information) like the enabling infrastrucure it is. Not more or less important - just equal.
