Support labels/externally accessible metadata on VM instances

It would be great to be able to deploy a VM instance and set certain labels/additional metadata to aid in automation, auditability and discoverability of deployed VMs.

Some example use cases:

  • Automation: Setting and reading an "expiry" label on a VM would allow cleanup of VMs past a certain time.

  • Audit: Setting labels that give insight into why, where and how the VM was created.

  • Discover: Finding all VMs that are of a specific type/role.

Kubernetes already has this concept of labels, so it would kind of be like exposing this functionality to the Orka API and setting the labels on the pod that belongs to each VM instance.
