Bridge: PDF metadata still reporting correct dimension in Bridge CC

This has been a particular bugbear of mine for years now and it seems CC is no better.

The Dimensions attribute on the Metadata panel gives you nothing useful when you're looking at PDFs. It WILL show some dimensions but I'm picking what it is showing is the JPEG preview dimensions, not the actual PDFs print dimensions. What use is that?

Would it be too hard to put in useful print dimensions, eg. the dimensions of the Cropbox, and especially the Trimbox (as in the Set Page Boxes panel in Acrobat X Pro), so that the Bridge metadata actually gives you USEFUL information?

Why should I have to open a PDF to find out its actual print dimensions, when there is a Dimensions attribute in Bridge? I should be able to click on a thumbnail and Bridge will tell me whether it's A4 or A1, etc.
