Mapping Document Summary and Custom Properties for PDF's

I've been reading through the forum and the knowledge base and see that there is currently no plug-in available to support mapping between PDF file properties and PDM data cards.  However, I was hoping to clarify two points:

  1. It is clear from the forums that there is no way to write data card variables to the PDF custom properties.  However, what's unclear to me is whether there is any way to get PDM just to read the properties (i.e. one way linking from the PDF to the PDM data card... don't need data card changes after importing to be re-embedded into the PDF)
  2. Is the lack of a plug-in only applicable to custom properties or to custom properties AND document summary properties?
