Adobe: please provide a way to update custom metadata without changing edit-date & edit-count, or at a minimum: divide the current edit-date/count into 2 types:

1. those having to do with non-custom (Lr native) metatdata, e.g. develop settings, keywords...
2. those having to do with custom metadata, i.e. "properties for plugin".

That way we can do things like use custom metadata for showing edit-date & edit-count of changes which excludes the changes to custom metadata only. - as it stands there's a catch-22 ya know ;-}.

PS - further refinement would also be beneficial, e.g. develop settings vs. other (non-image-affecting) metadata..., but that's for another feature request ;-}.

Cheers,
Rob
