Changing Folder Properties with Templates

Currently, I have one EPDM Template that creates a Bid folder with three subfolders (Bid number and some other info is collected and assigned to the bid folder and inherited by the subfolders). Later, when the bid turns into a contract more folders get added using a second template run from within the Bid folder. The model number and name are collected from the user and applied to the new folders, but it seems the existing folders do not get updated with this information even if I list them in the template (I've noticed that I can't change permissions on the existing folders this way either, but that's water under the bridge).

In my ideal world, I would really like to just add this information to the parent folder data card (the original Bid folder) and then just let the rest of them inherit, but that doesn't seem possible. If I could have my cake and eat it too, I'd like to also change the filename of the Bid folder to include the model number. Why not shoot for the moon? :-)

Any suggestions?
