I created a patch which sets the property type even if the field is not stored in the database.

I think the main reason we need to do that is because it raises an EntityMetadataWrapperException : Unknown data property... for such fields.
Am i right skipyT ?

Edit: silly me, it was another issue: #1414282: Support for entity_metadata_wrapper()

I think you need to replace that line :
$field['settings']['database']['data_type'] by $field_type['property_type'] = $property_types[$field['settings']['database']['data_type']]; + the getter callback should return the value coming from the computed function.

New features go into the latest dev branch. This is not critical as the module will still work without it.
