What else could we use instead for getting the meta data?

You should also support the susetags format, it's pretty easy to parse.

Which files in a SUSE repo file hierachy must we parse *instead* of
rpmmd primary.xml?

It is suse/setup/descr/packages.gz .

However, this format might get superceeded by an extended rpm-md with next
release (or not, the plan exists for a longer time already, but it did not
happen so far) ...
