To enable us to support partitioning within the identity management 
module, I'd like to implement a feature similar to what we had in the 
previous version of PicketLink IDM, FeaturesMetaData [1].  The 
IdentityStore interface returns an instance of this (see [2]) which can 
be used to determine the exact capabilities supported by that 
IdentityStore instance.  This is important for use cases such as where 
users may be stored in one identity store (such as an LDAP directory), 
and role and group memberships might be stored in another store (e.g. a 

I will probably implement this in a slightly different fashion using a 
Set of enum values instead, however the functionality will by and large 
remain the same.  If anyone has any feedback on this proposal, please 
let me know otherwise I'll proceed with the implementation in the next 
day or so.
