Great idea! Active development has been started to implement this
functionality and we expect for it to be ready on galaxy-central (test
server) within the month and published to galaxy-dist shortly thereafter.
We really appreciate your sharing a use case along with the request.
When the new functionality comes out and you have a chance to give it a
try, we would be interested in any feedback that you may have.

I would like to annotate my data sets and enable users to search on these annotations.
For example, suppose I have datasets from different microbial species and strains, grown
on different media under different conditions. I can attach templates to all of my data
that would have fields for species, strain, growth medium and treatment. Suppose now I
want to look at all of the data from S.cerevisae, strain ABC, grown on a medium XYZ, under
heat stress. How do I do that? I have looked around my Galaxy instance and on the Wiki,
but I could not figure out how to search on template fields.
