It's to be able to get record metadata - metadata about a retrieved record
(as contrasted with metadata about the resource that the record describes,
which is already in the record, assuming that you're retrieving metadata

resource described by the record), its rank within the result set, who may
modify the record, when the record was created, last updated, who created
it, who modified it, etc.
