Was just speaking with dabo about this and we agree that metadata is a bad name for this capability. 

I don't really care about what we call it, but metadata has some preconceived notions/meanings. Perhaps Criteria?

Currently we have *some* criteria for creating a new instance on the Openstack API side: flavors and operating system. But I think the OS API payload allows for additional "criteria" to be passed in with the request (not sure).

Eventually all this stuff will have to make it to the Scheduler for Server-Best-Match/Zone-Best-Match. That's somewhere on our task list for Cactus :/
