Lightroom exposure compensation display?

Im Bridge when i've got a picture selected as well as showing me the shutter speed,aperture, iso and other things in icons for a summary it also shows me if the camera was set for exposure compensation and if so, what it was (ie +1,-2/3 etc). This is really useful for stacking bracketed shots for later later editing or HDR merging.
I can't see similar functionality in LR3 or 4 beta- the only way is to delive into the individual metadata for each photo.
If ive imported a batch of photos including a few bracketed shots and auto tone has processed its sometimes really hard to quickly identify which ones need stacking and work in other programs.
Am i missing something here or would this be a useful future feature in LR? (add it to the right hand pane where it shows histogram, shutter,aperture,iso etc)?

You can certainly display the EC in the Metadata panel. Try a different preset like "EXIF", for example.

You can also show the EC both in the Loupe Info overlay, and in the Grid Cell - both Compact and Expanded cell extras (called Exposure Bias).
