For metag, see the patchset intro for a brief (hopefully !marketing)
intro and links to documentation. Meta is the marketing name, metag is
generally used in code which reduces ambiguity with the word meta - tbh
I'm not certain whether metag is short for metagence or means something
else, but it's been that way for years now.

Where would you suggest?

Some other arches link to the linux-$ARCH project homepages in Kconfig
help text which makes sense as that can then link to various
documentation and be more easily kept up to date. Not all arches have a
big project around them like that though.
