You give me an idea: We could use the RDF framework to have each portlet delivering
meta information about itself.

For custom portlets it could be either a parameter or an attached file, or generated by the
For generic portlets (like RSS portlets) it could be generated or taken directly from the
source channel.

Something like  

InputSource portlet.getMetaInfoSource() ---> already parsed or generated
String portlet.getMetaInfo() ---> formatted as a RDF XML file.

They would return something like the following:
    xmlns:rdf = "http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
    xmlns:ocs = "http://alchemy.openjava.org/ocs/directory#"
    xmlns:dc  = "http://purl.org/metadata/dublin_core#">

        <dc:title>Moreover OCS Directory</dc:title>

Does it make sense for you?

So, essentially, the customizer would be an extra feed :-)
