The problem is that GNUnet cannot allow users to just update meta-data (since 
that would allow bad people to put in bogus meta data and since the 
encryption does not allow peers to identify "old" metadata). This completely 
rules out any wiki-style meta-data management (and clearly existing wikis do 
have this problem with accountability for the provided content). 

What would be possible is to add additional meta-data for a given file.  But 
this is clearly already possible, just select the file and re-run 

Oh, and you do not want to do the adding of meta-data after the insertion 
itself because then the content would have to be first published with empty 
meta-data, which would linger around in the system and just waste resources.
