The intention is to define a way to define metadata fields. This is
required for searching and useful for metadata read/write too. So lets
come up with the properties we allow metadata fields to have. I think
what we have so far is what is required for searching too. So this
will not be about an API for reading and writing.

I would like to say that this will allow us to have common unit tests
for the data extractors. This is a nice boon.
