Could you give some practical examples?  What non-Java tool would need to
know about the component?  A brain dump would help us visualize the landscape
a bit better.

Wouldn't it also work to create a meta info exporter tool for those purposes?
I.e. the info is still stored with the class so you only have one unit to
serialize in a distributed environment, but external systems can access the
exported representation of the meta info
