Remarks

This interface can be implemented by an attribute class so that the attribute can add metadata to the model metadata creation process without writing a custom metadata provider. This interface is consumed by the AssociatedMetadataProvider class, so this behavior is inherited by all classes which derive from it, such as the DataAnnotationsModelMetadataProvider class.
