More than that, we should actually have the license data (and other stuff
like attribution and descriptions) in a Wikidata-like structure instead of
messing with parsing templates at all. The page for that is
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Structured_data. Please do
participate in that process.

That really should have been done first instead of the CommonsMetadata
extension, in my personal opinion.
