Possible to read extra metadata from ePub?

I have my ebooks (EPUB3) with the following predefined metadata in it:
Code:
    <metadata xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
        ...
        <meta property="schema:wordCount">2123</meta>
        <meta property="schema:numberOfPages">10</meta>
        ...
    </metadata>
Would it be possible to import this into Calibre's custom columns, preferably with the same names? Or maybe there is some plugin that does it already?

No not really. calibre can read/write its own custom metadata to EPUB but not arbitrary metadata. If youhave some existing way of redainghtat metadata already what you could do is use the calibredb command to script the addition of the books to calibre, setting the metadata after each add.
