How to set additional report metadata?

I have scenario like this: Sam requests a product report from company A.  Marvin creates the report and send it back to Sam.  Sam imports it.  It would be best if Marvin (Author of the report) could specify all the meta data so that Sam doesn't have to enter these things.

In my case I need following metadata for the report:

  • Keyword: some external tags...
  • Description: a description so that the user can understand what this report will show and the purpose of the report.

Another piece of meta data would be ReportTitle.  It would be nice to access this info from expressions so that I could show the report title in the page header. I can also use it in my app when I import the report. I could display the report title to the user instead of the file name. Crystal reports has this kind of meta data and it can be used in formulas.
