    True if the metadata is editable
    This method or property must be called within the lambda passed to QueuedTask.Run.
    Layer metadata is typically editable unless the Layer is using an underlying data source for metadata or the .aprx is not editable. Sub layer types do not support metadata. They typically have a single source, specified on the parent layer, that controls the metadata.
