Thomas, this looks like a really ugly workaround. Do your metadata
fields really change so often that it's worth to automate it? Only the
admin can change them and the admin can usually also restart the
servlet container. What kind of schema are you using that can't be
defined once and stay the same?

Just to give you a glimpse of the future in case you really need this
- there has been a recent proposal to rework configuration [1] that would
remove the need to restart DSpace when configuration changes. So the
next version of DSpace _might_ let you customize it so that a restart
is not necessary.
