That's true. Although right now TMF doesn't have an API to ask a trace 
"give me all the event types you have", other than just reading the 
trace ;)

wrt CTF, it's possible to have events in the metadata that don't 
actually show up in the trace. But that's not really a problem, at worst 
you'd end up with empty columns.
