I can imagine two things.

* A `@def...` that has 'meta' as the default (after the first
  argument), and users have to add `@var` and friends to tag other
  types, and

* a command `@meta` to tag stuff as meta.  On the other hand, maybe
  `@r` is good enough.

I think the current behaviour is OK, that is, you get 'slanted' in
normal text, and 'slanted typewriter' if used within typewriter.
Admittedly, I'm not a fan of too much typewriter in paragraphs...
