As the proposal (http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/mst/) states, Metamodel
Specification Tools (MST) is a proposed open source subproject of the Model
Development Tools (MDT) project to provide tooling for the development of
MOF compliant metamodels, and specifications based on them.

The MST project would customize and/or extend the existing (or forthcoming)
UML editors (primarily for class and package/profile diagrams) to expose
CMOF concepts which are missing in UML (like identifiers, namespace URIs,
and XMI tags), leverage the CMOF (de)serialization support that was
introduced in the UML2 project as part of the Ganymede release, and provide
a mechanism for generating a specification (or at least a decent boiler
plate for one) directly from the metamodel using BIRT. The project would
also aim to automate the mapping between a metamodel and its profile
representation (if there is one) and to make use of the Eclipse Process
Framework (EPF) to document and coordinate the specification development
process.

If you are experienced with metamodel and/or specification development or
willing to gain such experience, please let us know!
