    Great post!  I’m glad to see that the MetadataProviderFactory  is taking shape.  We’re looking at doing the true dynamic metadata like you mentioned, and are looking at having a data provider from the database.  To do so, it does not appear that we will be able to use the strongly typed approach, but rather use a model similar to your previous XML provider approach.  Could you make the source for the XML metadata provider available for us to use as reference?
