Neutron metering was originally created as a way to get input for 
billing tenants for usage, giving admins numbers for what stayed inside 
or exited a datacenter.  It has languished over the past few cycles 
either because it is working perfectly, or not used very much - my guess 
is the latter.

That said, if you want to propose an enhancement, there is an RFE 
process defined in 
you can use, the neutron drivers team has weekly meetings to discuss 
things for inclusion into releases.
