Subject CIMI::EntityMetadata
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2011 14:24:48 GMT

EntityMetadata allows for:

 "Consumers to discover the metadata associated with each supported entity.
  Doing so allows for the discovery of Provider defined constraints on the 
  CIMI defined attributes as well as discovery of any new extension attributes 
  that the Provider may have defined."

right now I'm just mapping deltacloud features to CIMI EntityMetadata - for example
to signal that a Machine will not accept a consumer defined name as this is set
by the provider (EC2 is one case). I think this mechanism can be useful for getting
around the particularities of individual providers - we can add to it as issues
