That's intentional. You're "polluting" a namespace that doesn't belong to
you. Any update that introduces a new feature could potentially collide
with your key/value pairs. Also, the CIB really isn't performant enough
to store meta data like this.

If by "advanced" you mean "abusing cluster features", yes, then I agree,
that are scenarios we want to limit ;-)
