I have been testing Metadata and find it very usefull.
However it is some work to :

set all properties like name, description right in several languages
Defining relationships between tables
set the correct mask for number or date
In the case of an ERP system, most of the information needed, is available in the metadata of the ERP system and could be retrieved automatically.

So, i was wondering if there are any plans to have a plugin framework that would allow a customer to write it's own plugins so that the necessary info could be loaded automatically?

Exactly. The "Importer" should be pluggable in the future and it should also be capable of doing incremental updates.
I'm actually in Orlando this week and next to talk about these things.
