If you know a bit Perl, sure. You could add a database file, like 
$INV_INDEX_DB_FILE and all the others. During indexing you analyse the 
meta tags and write the information into that "file" (it's a hash, the key 
would be the document id, the value whatever value you're interested in). 
When searching you query that information in answer_query(), just like 
it's done for query->param('include') and query->param('exclude').

In other words: it should be quite simple.
