with a little javascript anything is possible. (well almost)

Create a field on the page of type: text, name it something
like: 'docinfo' (set the 'multiline' option to on)
then add another field of type: button and add an action of type 'Run a
Javascript'
inthe Javascript editor dialog box enter the following:

var docInfoField = this.getField("docinfo");
for (var i in this.info)
docInfoField.value = (i + ": "+ this.info[i] + "\n\r");

when you print the PDF the form field will print out with the document
information. there are other programmatic ways to get at this information
(using VB/Javascript), and even more elegant ways with Javascript.
