I haven't looked closely enough to see whether author is also included.

I don't know whether it would therefore be possible to fake Amazon out using Calibre or not. One must also take into account that a lot of information about books bought from Amazon is maintained in your account on the Amazon servers/archive. So even if all the metadata was correct, if it does not match the data held by Amazon in your account, it may not work correctly.
Amazon is not matching up books with the library. As I already stated, I have deDRMed ebooks from Amazon that are no longer on my account because Amazon closed my original account when it was hacked last year. Amazon said they couldn't give me my ebooks back but they reimbursed me for all the books I bought. I still had the books backed up without DRM, of course, and I can post to FB from those books and have them display perfectly.
