Meta Revisit - A Completely Useless Meta Tag

Having read some recent discussion on the meta revisit meta tag, I am now convinced it is utterly useless. So much so, it is not even worth including "just in case". The tag goes something like this:

<meta name="revisit-after" content="7 days">

The only search engine that ever obeyed it was Canadian search engine searchBC, specific to Vancouver Webpages, which confines itself to British Columbia sites!

Read the Google Code Blog article Metadata and you will see this meta tag referred to as

"nothing more than a good luck charm".

So a complete waste of space, and if used, unnecessary clutter in the <head> section of the web page.
