Imaging the following scenario:
Scenario: It is possible to list books by author
Given an author <author>
When user searches by author
Then there are books listed
Meta properties are added (or updated), to existing ExamplesTable parameters, this leads into 'rjimgal', feed into 'Given an author <author>' step.
I think examples table value should take preference over Meta value. This makes even more sense for Gherkin, where Meta does not have any value associated, and thus
an empty string would be used instead.
