I understand that it's possible to add metadata to the output of a software-defined asset, but it seems this metadata is available only for the Dagster UI, not as input to any following asset in the orchestration graph. Right? Or is there a way to transmit metadata as well? I'm using Pandas dataframes having unfortunate little to no support for metadata. (A beginner's question maybe, but either there are numerous ways to solve it so I got blind or it's not designed to be supported.)
