Can I keep metadata for each item of RSS feed ?

P: n/a
Want to ask one thing about RSS ( Really Simple Syndication )
I went through RSS specifications. Read all fields of item and channel.
But didn't find any field that could help me to store some of metadata
about each item. For Example.

<item>
<title> Titanic </title>
<description> Great Movie...A true love story </description>
<link>http://titanic.com</link>
*** <MetadataField> Movie </MetadataField> ****
<item>
Is ther any field like <metadatafield> that could possibly allow me to
keep some metedata about each item ?

Use something from a different namespace. Dublin Core is probably a good
choice. http://del.icio.us/rss/ is an example of that.

http://dublincore.org/ has the specs.
