The PNG Metadata Format Specification in the package description for
javax.imageio.metadata has the text
"The semantics of the standard chunks are described in the PNG specification"

to a site full of commercials.
We should instead link to http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/spec/
as is done in the table in the package description for javax.imageio
