No, not directly.

You mean other than adding meta data to the pdf file?

If you are using to index you can add a filter and can modify 
the content any way you like.  If you look at you 
can see some examples.

Yes, if you filter first to HTML then you can add any meta tags you 
like.  You can do that either using HTML::TreeBuilder or HTML::Parser, 
or simply doing a regular expression substitution.

I have often thought that a way to add meta data to the headers when 
using -S prog might be nice.
