state of metadata?

What is the state of metadata?
Does anybody know if EXT3 is going to bring some metadata support?
The problem with metadata external to the filesystem is that not
GUI tools (like mv, rm, etc.) could interfere with metadata. There has
been a big issue on gnome-ui-list about a trash icon in Gnome, but many
things are difficult to implement without metadata support in the
filesystem. (above all, problems related to not GUI tools).
