I would like to discuss here about two blueprint proposal (maybe could I
merge them into one if you prefer) :


*Use case* :
I would like to set specific properties to an image which could
represent a signature, and useful for licensing requirements for example.
To do that, I should be able to export an image with user properties

Then, a user could reuse the exported image in the public cloud, and
Glance will be aware about its properties.
Obviously, we need the import / export feature.

The idea here is to be able to identify an image after cloning or
whatever with a property field. Of course, the user could break it in
editing the image manually, but I consider he / she won't.

Let me know if you have any thoughts and if the blueprint is valuable.
