I’ve contemplating giving them a section of their own.
As you say they don’t really fit as metadata but also they are not about
metadata policies. They are concerned with trust chain validation.

The sentence about GET requests are about the federation API.
The client sends its entity statement to the federation_registration_endpoint 
which is not part of the federation API. 
As you guessed POST is used to send the client registration information.
