Dublin Core metadata was supposed to do that (and I did not do anything that Dublin core recommended since it seemed to only help librarians within their closed systems and not real people on the web) and now I see that Google is recommending schema.org meta data attributes - so will the herd follow?
Do others think that this will catch on and the billions of pages will be reedited to add these into them (or only new pages?).
I can see value of doing so, but that is a LOT of work for an existing site - even my small 350 page site.

It's doubtful it will catch on for a very long time. Most website designers don't even know what to put in Title tags

After reading a couple of articles about the schema.org mark up Iím left with the impression that:
1. It should help the supporting engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo) categorise the page (what itís about) and may improve their ability to match it to a search query (depending on their interpretation of user intent for that query).
2. It might give you more control over the snippet displayed for your result in the SERPs although the Google Ďrich snippets testing toolí is pretty non-committal about that.
It sounds like one of those things that might do some good, canít do any harm, but probably isnít worth busting a gut over.
Like you, I have a site with pages in the hundreds not thousands. Inserting the relevant mark up from schema.org on the pages that might benefit isnít that difficult or time-consuming.
Iíll be doing it a few pages at a time Ė when I have time. Itís not a priority.

By the way, I add them to my page templates, not to the actual pages themselves. I would never try to manage a 350 page site without some sort of template system, even if it's only a rudimentary as Dreamweaver templates.
