I just watched a Webinar on the exact same subject (pretty good).. might have been yours, was distributed by Martin Kirov at Telerik, but it didn't have anyones name associated with it (I think... I tried to find the authors name).
I swear I remember reading somewhere that you could only use two meta fields with the Events module (I actually went a while thinking I was limited to the number of meta fields I could use and that I could only use them with the events module).
I considered at one point of generating a module completely off of meta data ~ until I heard more about the Generic Content base system that is used in Sitefinity. I'd like to see a sample implementation around the Generic Content base module (completely custom, not extending an existing system). I guess where I am a bit confused is if I use custom tables and store my data using a custom data provider, but still use Teleriks framework, does it use the same principles as described in your documentation (mapping control IDs and their text attributes to the values) or do I have to use the Generic Content base classes. What I have been doing is creating custom tables/data access layers and modules for everything I do, manually mapping values to controls, when I think this could be so much easier.
