Vendor specific meta tags

The company I work for use IE almost exclusively. Every member of staff has been on IE9 for some time and are now on IE11 which means that I'm in the fortunate position of not needing worry too much about implementing CSS and Javascript workarounds for old browsers. What I am seeing more of though is vendor specific meta data.

Although the company use IE on the desktop (I still use Chrome & Firefox for development), we do also test projects on Android and iOS. All three platforms we support have their own tags for icons and the like.

It would be good see some standards introduced so that developers can add this type of information in a way that can be used by multiple browsers.
