Are the metadata fields when creating a TM defunct?

Hi there

I am looking for some advice on how the metatdata is attributed to the TM segments.

If I create a project, any TM segments translated within that project are attributed the metadata for that project - so what is the purpose of the metadata fields for the actual TM (when creating a new TM)?

Is it simply an old way of attributing metadata when you could align material, outwith a project? AFAIK it is not an option to do this nowadays without creating a project, therefore the metadata is attributed from the project.

any advice would be appreciated - slàinte
