Add-ons to new testdef YAML format

Registered by Senthil Kumaran S on 2012-11-29

This is derived from the TODO list of Test Case management Core blueprint here - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/lava-dispatcher/+spec/test-case-managment-core

It adds more constructs/paramenters specially focussing on meta-data to the new testdef YAML format.
