  I actually only miss the export date, but after seeing for instance what 
txt2tags (another markup syntax) provides, I think this will cover most needs:

- export date (that is, current date). So that you can say „Page updated on 
22/4/2009“. txt2tags for instance has %%date and %%date(format-string), as in 
- file modification time; useful for instance if you export *all* pages 
frequently (then the export date would be the same for all even for unmodified 
- input file name; useful to say „See the Org source for this page: 
blabla.org“. It can also have a format string to select whether you want the 
extension, the full path, etc.
- output file name; only to say „This is page blabla.html“.
- table of contents

  Better use longer words like [EXPORT-FILE-NAME], or more Org-like syntax.

  Is there other metainformation that people need at export time?
  Org version? User name? File attributes?
