These are undocumented it seems - as the meta-data docs doesn't cover it - however it is supported, and tests for such a thing have been long-standing.
I'm considering removing this functionality, considering this complication, its undocumented status, and apparent lack of use in the real world (I couldn't find a real-world project where I actually used it), as it was pretty advanced stuff, and mostly useful for dynamic documents, which is a use case we are moving away from.
While I can code a workaround for this use case, I'd rather remove this functionality altogether, in the process of streamlining, simplifying, and improving the performance of DocPad. The less complex edge cases, that can be accomplished by more streamlined ways, the better.
