Well, sometimes... I often get articles from the arxiv, which do not
have metadata, but the contents coincides with the "published" version,
so I can then use the metadata from mathscinet even if my library does
not have access.

However, I just found zotero + zotfile, which is a firefox plugin and
does what I need.  Although I love emacs, it's probably better to stick
to something which is well-maintained.
