Hi Neal,
It depends how they use it. If they generate updateinfo.xml separately and
then just add it as yet another repodata, there is no limitation to what
one can add.
We are using createrepo_c library to parse/generate updateinfo.xml. I
believe the reporter hasn't checked yet, if certain fields are supported or
not, but a quick look into the code suggests that they are not.
E.g. here is the list of fields for the package in advisory package list
