I am not sure we ought to include it or not. I see valid points for
both and I will focus my answer in the cons:

 * Documentation: our Release Notes, User Guide and FAQ are still
uncomplete. Add new stuff will only make it worse as those will also
need to be documented.

 * Tests: We see limited tests using the images we have and people
does not provide much feedback when we open the test form. More things
will only complicate it more.

 * Size: more metadata means more updates and maintenance. We need
more people helping the metadata maintenance before extend it.

I cannot a lot more time in FSL Community BSP that I do. I do it in my
free time and before extending it we need more people committed to the
maintenance work.

Those are my remarks about this, and meta-browser, addition.
