Rick,

I have added the <META NAME="ROBOTS example within
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Testing:_Review_Webserver_Metafiles_for_Information_Leakage_(OTG-INFO-003)
due to its relevancy with Spiders/Robots/Crawlers from v3.

My recommendation would be to retain the original title from v3 and
define "Review_Webserver_Metafiles_for_Information_Leakage" as a
separate test within v4 for HTML Comments and other SEO related <META>
Tags..
