I'm willing to invest some time in it, if others provide me with some
input for the things to change (like you did: add 'ows_enable_request *'
in all metainfo).
A reason for not so much activity in the plugin, is (I think) also the
fact that it is currently only working good for old symbology.
I'm not sure how much effort it will be and/or if it is feasible to
include the more complicated 'new symbology' in it...
