Since when has a decision been made?  

Snort has a meta-data stored in keywords.  References are a perfect example
of meta-data that is handled in a keyword.  Those that want to use the
meta-data can.  Those that don't, don't.

Requiring parsing of messages for applications that want the support
is a nasty hack that I'd love to avoid.
