Photoshop: "Export As" needs more metadata exported in the file

According to “What’s New in Photoshop” the Export As, and Quick Export compression algorithms have been updated, and supposedly better than “Save for Web.” But the metadata that transfers with Export As is minimal.

Here’s my workflow with an explanation on why I would like more metadata:
I always shoot raw files. When I import them into Lightroom I add the original raw file name to the metadata. When I, or clients rename the file, and then years later they want me to modify the original file, without the original file number embedded in the file’s metadata it is extremely difficult to find that exact file again.  But if the meta-data is exported to the file, it is so much easier. Not to mention all the other metadata that I’d like in the exported file. 

How difficult could this be. It’s been quite a long time now now and I’ve seen other people asking for it. 

Pretty please . . .

Thanks!
