A few days ago, I talked about Oslo and metadata issues with BI stack. I got several comments and the discussions it's interesting, but as I said it is too early now to use Oslo - but it could be a foundation for a future product.
As a side note, today I noted an Intellipad plugin to generate models for NHibernate starting from a textual DSL (Domain Specific Language) - it is called NHModeller and it shows just one of the powerful features of Oslo. It is not BI-related, but it could be useful to look at even if you just want to get an idea of what is the potential of a DSL with Oslo. However, the most interesting part of Oslo for the BI metadata issue is the repository, not something that you can actually see with a tool like NHModeller.
