Oh how naive of me !!
It turns out that Photoshop CS uses Adobe's new format XMP instead of (or
as well as) Exif. Whether it's "instead of" or "as well as" depends on
which version of PS CS, which source the photo came from, ... and which web
page you believe :-)
However, that shouldn't affect the summary of what I said - that Photoshop
etc. already support what you need for the kind of workflow you
described. InDesign also supports XMP, and eventually all Adobe products
will support it (many of them already do, though PS Elements doesn't appear
for more details.
