Shortcut approach to presenting meta?

Was wondering if GETTING the meta via a direct call on the ctl_dbconfig might be a quick and easy way to implement a way to query a dB's meta info? Endpoints could include the entity name to filter for it, e.g. /api/meta/contact or /api/meta/company etc. I must admit I'm not sure exactly how secure this would be by not ensuring an abstraction layer in between though?

Not sure we would need to go below the framework to support metadata.  However, there's probably some thought needed as to how we surface metadata.  E.g., should we support OData endpoint (aka $metadata)?
