AFAIK Zope doesn't officially support meta-data associated with a product in 
any meaningful way.

I have often thought this would be beneficial tho, as it would allow a 
product to have a global configuration interface in the ZMI that would affect 
all instances.

I think it would be a worthwhile project to think about an API for product 
"preferences". Perhaps this could be added (as tabs I guess) to the exisitng 
Zope preferences.
