LR4: Exporting "all metadata" to a JPEG file doesn't always export original file name

Specifically LR 4's export to JPEG and Photoshop's "Save For Web" exports don't save the original file name in a new JPEG's metadata (even though they say they will export all metadata). But Photoshop's "Save As" does when saving a JPEG. This is CS5. I haven't checked CS6 yet.

I find this useful when a client renames a file and then wants me to find the original raw file. I would open their renamed file in Photoshop (or even a word processor) and the original name would be in the Raw Data area in File Info.

So if these programs have a switch that says "export all metadata" and they do sometimes, but don't other times, shall we call this a bug?
