Ceilometer resource type - infer?

Ceilometer gives the resource id and metric id for a set of samples but the meta data included (eg. Name, image.size) is specified by the caller, and from what I can see ceilometer doesn't store any information about what the resource actually is in the database (is it a Nova resource? Glance?)

Is there a way to get the resource type directly from the ceilometer Api? Or is there a call to another restful endpoint in the stack to retrieve this?

Or is it assumed that you must infer what the resource is from its meta data? Eg. A resource with a heap of metadata about disk read, write and memory could be a glance image, who's primary human identifier is the name field. I'm unsure if this is a maintainable feature, given metadata changing for resources.
