This class cannot be instantiated. A ProviderMetadata object defies a list of EventKeyword objects, one for each keyword used by the provider events. Each keyword is a bit in a 64-bit mask. Predefined bit values and reserved bits occupy the top 16 positions of this mask, leaving the manifest to use any bits between 0x0000000000000001 and 0x0000800000000000.

The standard event keywords are defined in the StandardEventKeywords enumeration.
