Custom Info Items

One of the things I miss from Diamond is the metadata 'user rating'. I pay very little attention to what's going on in theaters, so I frequently don't know anything about the movies when they make it to TV. Consequently, those user ratings are helpful to me to know how many beers I need to drink before watching a particular movie.

Also, there are a few items that I find myself routinely going to the 'detailed info' screen to get. It would be nice if I could optionally have some of those things shown on the 'main' info screen.

Some of the things I'm thinking of:
User rating (actually, I'd like to see this on the list of recordings, as with Diamond)
Captions (this would be most useful if the info is derived from the recording, rather than the metadata)
Available languages (ditto)
Parental rating (this might already be there? Not sure)
Run time (again, this might already be on there)
video and audio formats (I know these are on there already, optionally, via the 'details')
Tuner that was used

This is just an idea I thought I'd throw out for discussion. I was thinking you could have a list of items and the user could pick which would appear on the info screen. If you wanted to get really fancy, you could design the info screen a bit like widgets, where you could decide for yourself what information would appear in various places.

Or, on second thought, some of these could be optionally shown next to the movie title rather than (or in addition to) the info screen.

Has this feature been added back? I don't see it and really miss it. I would like to see it in List Flow and Center flow in particular.
