I’m making a breaking change to Inlay at the moment. I’ve been very cautious about these sorts of things in past, because I wanted Inlay to be the simplest, least-possible-thing-that-could-work, rather than a heavy solution that imposes a bunch of structure on you.
But I noticed something while working out the in-browser interface for editing templated pages: everyone has to manually set the page title and the meta keywords and description as editable, for each template, and that means that it probably won’t get done, even though it’s basic core functionality that every dynamic page should have.
So from now on, the title, description, and keywords will always be editable without any manual intervention on your part. If you don’t want these to be different from page to page (non-optimal behavior on your part, but hey, your choice) then you can edit them to be empty (the tag won’t be published) or the same as other pages.
The expression “paving the cowpaths” means to watch what your users are doing, and then make the repetitive or required parts of that process easier, so they’ll do them automatically. It’s a good opportunity to look for in any design process.
