Why does the ConfigDrive settings require a MetaData file?

Hello,

I am just trying to understand why the ConfigDrive settings require a MetaData file? I can see that for the CDROM settings, we simply skip the PublicSSHKeyForUsername, however when using a ConfigDrive, if the MetaData file is not present then the bosh agent returns an error. Could the bosh-agent simply skip and not error out if the MetaData file is not defined?

If someone can explain this with some actual use case examples, then I would appreciate it.

Thanks
Krishnan
