Forcing the Reader to update title/author

Is there some way to force a Reader to update its title/author data for a book while retaining everything else (especially the id)? All methods that I know lead to a generation of new id:

- modify the book file's creation date and/or size and/or filename
- delete the book's record from the cache XML
- modify date/size/name of the book's record in the cache XML

(I have written a tool which generates collections, but I can't set title and author - except maybe by decoding them from each particular file, which I don't want to do - I would have to write a parser for each filetype, for one thing...)
