Provide ability to add metadata to machines and environments
Would like to see the ability to add metadata to machines and environments as well as a simple onhover or onclick dialog that displays the metadata. An example would IP addresses, OS versions, build dates for machines or technical owners etc. for environments in addition to a simple name.

Ideally metadata would also map the default data already present:
We have Display name, style, thumbprint, and url which all lend themselves to key value pairs
the Disable this target box could be either a tag (i.e. disabled) or a value pair (disabled: true)
Environments, and Roles would make a usable, but possibly awkward key value pair: (i.e. Environments: [Dev, Prerelease, Release]

In my opinion:
Ideally metadata would be in two forms: name value pairs and tags.
The usage would be both for display purposes & for querying environments/machines to do work on.
