When you loock at the details in the rest service catalog of ArcGIS Server it would be GREAT to see the metadata that is created for the featureclass in ArcCatalog (Description tab). I simply don't understan why ESRI haven't iplemented this feature.
I could get the metadata from the SDE database if i just knew the name of the database and the featureclass name. Then I could get the XML stored in the database. There may be security issues but I think you can solve them.
There have been many advancements in service metadata since this was originally logged. If you have any further ideas for us, please let us know!
