Update Mobi header/file metadata without doing a Mobi to Mobi conversion

I'm wondering if it's possible to update the header/metadata of a Mobi file (ideally in bulk) without doing a Mobi-to-Mobi conversion and potentially messing up the formatting or wasting time doing something that isn't needed.

don't know if this is what you're looking for or not - some mobi additions to the quality check plugin
