Could additional information from the databse be present in the datfiles themselves, such as write offset, or other metadata from each game?

I'm using sarami's Conv2multiBin to convert single file bin/cue to redump format.
The tool itself uses the dat file to find CRC information, and it would be nice for it to use the dat for the write offset as well (though of course it the app itself would need to be expanded for this function). Drive offset seems to be calculated automatically, although it asks for this information (correct me if I misinterpret the output).

I vaguely remember Trurip containing extra info in the dat files. I don't see why we can't do the same.
