Theoretically, yes.

In terms of "searching" this would be very simple to do. Anyone can provide a 
search plugin which provides searching over different types. We currently have 
the following search plugins -

* File
* Emails
* Contacts

I'm going to be adding some more for "Events/Calendar" entries.

In term of actually fetching / saving metadata, it should be possible. I just 
haven't figured out how.
