We directly instantiate metalevel argumentation frameworks (MAFs) to enable argumentation-based reasoning about information relevant to various applications. The advantage of this is that information that typically cannot be incorporated via the instantiation of object-level argumentation frameworks can now be incorporated, in particular information referencing (1) preferences over arguments, (2) the rationale for attacks, and (3) the dialectical effect of critical questions that shifts the burden of proof when posed. We achieve this by using a variant of ASPIC+ and a higher-order typed language that can reference object-level formulae and arguments. We illustrate these representational advantages with a running example from clinical decision support.
