The vtkModelMetadata classes should most probably be deprecated; the relevant information can be stored using vtkInformation objects. This is cleaner than metadata being stored in a dataset's field data because global variables are now stored there as well and the potential for name collisions/confusion would be high if both global variables and metadata were stored in the field data.

Because the metadata may be extensive, loading it into a mesh should be an option. The option should most probably take the form of both an ivar and a vtkInformation key which could be added to pipeline requests by downstream consumers (such as the Exodus writer). If either the key is present or the ivar is true, the data should be read.
