Metering works as in Av mode. With the aperture coupling activated and lenses without aperture ring the aperture is limited to the wide open setting of the lens, though.

Actually you're not limited to wide open.  I just set my aperture to what I want with my canon 10D and remove the lens while holding the DOF preview button.  Stopping down to f4 make my pics with the Canon 50mm 1.8 much sharper.  With diffraction causing problems though above f4, it probably doesn't help with slower lenses.
