Metadata Propagation
Metadata associated to geometry is now propagated during many geom
etry operations (split, combine, detach, duplicate, create, etc)

If a surface has associated metadata and it is split, both surfaces will have d
uplicate copies of the original metadata

If two surfaces have associated metadata and they are combined, the resulti
ng surface will have the combined metadata from both surfaces
