Have you looked at EditAttributes?

It does exactly this, ie. lets you define and edit metadata fields
(eg. title, description, keywords) to use on Site.EditForm. It doesn't
yet handle page text variables but that's a relatively small addition,
if desired.

Actually, one reason I wrote EditAttributes was to let me keep and
edit this metadata directly as page attributes instead of the kludge
they are now (stored both as attributes and directives in page text).
In a way this runs counter to the idea of keeping these as page text
variables, but at least the changes I proposed in
should still let something like EditAttributes work.
