We discussed this with @smlng and think that it makes sense that this type of metadata lives in the registry, as it is the way to get the devices, for instance, by name. I see it as a way to gather all the metadata from the devices for an easy query, separated from the functional part (i.e. the driver abstraction) that SAUL provides.
