Please explain the ways that this will allow and force the front page
and archives work? For example, is the blog trail meant to be the
front page or the archive? Or is something that allows those things

Meaning that it's easy to cross-post to multiple blogs, correct?

Is this how metadata will be displayed with posts? (e.g. post title,
creation time/date, author, and so on?)

This will be used for multi-post pages, like the front page, archives,
and categories then? I assume "variety of formats" covers things like
how much of the entry is shown, and the where, how and what of any
metadata shown with it. Can we define our own formats?
