Search needs a way to return generic meta data. Like the formatted search parameter $formfield() but for generic meta data...$meta() perhaps?

As an example, I use the WorkflowPlugin which generates meta data that looks like:

I search it with the following:
"%SEARCH{"!='RELEASED' type="query" format="| [[$topic]] | $formfield(Requestedby) | $formfield(DateRequested) | $formfield(DescriptionofChange) |"}%
I'd like an easy way to pull out the value of in the search by writing something like:
"%SEARCH{"!='RELEASED' type="query" format="| [[$topic]] | $meta( | $formfield(Requestedby) | $formfield(DateRequested) | $formfield(DescriptionofChange) |"}%

agreed - this is sort of related to the mash of ideas that I have for ExtractAndCentralizeFormattingRefactor, and ResultSets etc, but I can't quickly find the other feature req - deals with adding a TOM addressing renderer

I think CleanerSyntaxForMetaDataAccess implements this.

This is addressed by %QUERY, added in 1.1
