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.:

AUTHOR
=> gemini://gemini.circumlunar.space/users/solderpunk/solderpunk.vcf rel=author Authored by The One & Only Solderpunk

Furthermore, all the RELs & schemas are already defined:

Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) Schemes
https://www.iana.org/assignments/uri-schemes/uri-schemes.xhtml

Link Relations
https://www.iana.org/assignments/link-relations/link-relations.xml

There is literally nothing for Gemini to invent. 

Just use what already exists.
