Topic: Serious Flaw (or Change) to CAcroPDDoc's SetInfo method!!!

We've been doing a lot of automation particularly setting standard (title, author, subject, keywords) and extended properties using the "SetInfo" method (of CAcroPDDoc). This has worked great in 5.x and 6.x (did not use 4.x).
But don't do this in 7.0. Do this using SetInfo for example:
objDoc.SetInfo "Title", "User Manual"
objDoc.SetInfo "Author", "E. P. Raymundo"
objDoc.SetInfo "Subject", "Manual"
objDoc.SetInfo "Keywords", "nuts, bolts, dismantle"
and you'll get:
Title = "Title"
Author = "Author"
Subject = "Subject"
Keyword = "Keywords"
SetInfo for "Custom" properties still work! But why would Adobe do this (if it's deliberate) - we earn our living automating this stuff!
