Not really. The 3.2 code certainly keeps track of where words came
from (e.g. which meta tag), but you're talking about something
different. The current code is intended mainly for restricting
searches to specific tag environments.

What you'd want is to store the meta information in the document
database, like the title, etc. This could be done, a la the META
description, but it hasn't been a common request.

If you'd like, I could give you tips on how to code such a modification.
