Should also get this finally added to CTs, I know it's a bit unfair to
add the burden to this patch series, but otherwise we might never add

It adds a bit of property length, but it might be good to follow the other
properties and use a bit more self-explanatory 'creation-user' here?

I mean, I don't hope that we add to much properties here, but in retrospect
the property name "meta" might have been a bit to general, something like
"creation-env" could have been a better choice - but as said, I still
hope that we don't add to much there anyway.

otoh, maybe this is even "to much" for such a thing, a dedicated audit log
might be better in general? (I got that with some rough planning on our
internal wiki)
