It looks like there is a library which can change + add exif meta data: http://sourceforge.net/projects/openexif/

So I'm wondering what your source was that said the fields are locked?

There is also a very good tool called ExifTool which allows very extensive changing of the meta information. There is however a warning about changing meta data, you have to know what you're doing.
