There's a change in WSME trunk (I don't think we've released it yet) that
allows the schema for a type to be changed after the class is defined.
There isn't any facility for allowing the caller to pass arbitrary data,
though. Part of the point of WSME is to define the inputs and outputs of
the API for validation.

How are the arbitrary values being stored in keystone? What sorts of things
can be done with them? Can an API caller query them, for example?
