Metadata enables initial visibility without having to directly interrogate the entity of interest.  In fact, it helps identify the entity as one of interest.  Part of this may be an indication of what policies will come into play and links to the details of those policies. 
[Marchant, Dan R.] What is your definition of an Entity? What is acted upon or what is acting upon?

Either.  I used "entity" as a general term for anything needed to solve a problem.  It could certainly be a service.  It may be data to provide input to processing done by a service.  It could be identified individuals who bring expertise to a problem  It could be individuals who are a threat and cause a problem.

While I don't expect our blueprints to discuss all possibilities in detail, the use of metadata and the enabling systems do have significant commonalities across different "entities".
