FWIW, I personally agree with the trust of your position.

Even though I personally prefer using the existing capabilities of the link construct, which is the only structured artifact in text/gemini, e.g.:

=> rel=license Licensed under the CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain Dedication 

=> gemini:// rel=author Authored by The One & Only Solderpunk

=>,2020-05-26:/dns/ Created on May 26th 2020

Furthermore, all the RELs & schemas are already defined:

Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Schemes

Link Relations

There is literally nothing for Gemini to invent. 

Just use what already exists.
