I've tested this issue today on Joomla! v.1.6.3 (current SVN version):
the bug is still there and behaviour is just the same as 4 years ago:
- editing article from Frontend does preserve metadata;
- editing article from backend erases custom metadata, unknown to Joomla.
- I couldn't find any link to the Joomla! article metadata extensibility except this thread ;)

IMHO CMS without content extensibility, especially without metadata extensibility, is outdated...
