Also, why is the meta_type information duplicated in typesinfo.xml and types/foo.xml?

The adapter for the container is responsible for creating empty sub- objects. So in this case the TypesToolXMLAdapter needs to know the meta_type information to find the correct class.

Ok I thought it would be something like that. I don't like it but I don't see another option.

The meta_type information in types/foo.xml isn't strictly necessary, but it allows to see to which meta_type the XML file belongs and to check the meta_type before applying an XML file to an object.

Yes I agree that it's good to have it in types/foo.xml for consistency and self-sufficiency.
