One behaviour we stumbled over recently is that in a Silva export the actual value of metadata is sticked to the documents (and objects) exported. This leads to unexpected results with acquired metadata values when the objects are imported in a different context. Let's imagine a layout whose colours are defined by a metadata value. Now if we export a document from an environment characterized by a blue colour and imported in a red environment, most probably we expect the imported document to be displayed in a red environment too. However, as the formerly acquired metadata value for the colour (blue) now is sticked to the document, the document's new display colour is still blue.
How do you handle this behaviour? Is this a feature or a bug?
