First of all: nice article.
This all approach (specially in what concerns Metastorage) reminds me about Metamodeling approaches that are starting to be used in a lot of software engineering projects now. It would be nice to, at some point, be able to integrate with, e.g. eclipse EMF project. From integrating with this, all the XML data-structure could be easily obtained and manipulated in a textual and graphical fashion. Anyway, I was just thinking loud!

That would be a great idea. Metastorage comes with a contributed tool to convert XMI (generated by any UML modeler) to the Metastorage XML format. It is not exactly the same thing as you propose, but it enabled visual model editing.
I do not have the time to do it implement an Eclipse plug-in to implement a visual modeler for Metastorage, but if anybody is willing to develop something like that, I would be willing to provide the necessary support to make it happen faster. Just let me know if you have interest.
