Verify parser will not alter custom fields during updates

Description

Custom fields are needed to hold additional manually curated information, however it needs to be verified that running the parser for updates will not remove/alter the values in these fields.

If the parser will affect them, the parser needs to be changed to handle the presence of these custom fields.

From what I can see in the WP-Parser code, there are checks to see if an entry already exists for a documentable element. If so, then that entry is updated, including the meta data. Custom data using other keys are not touched, so as long as you're using a different key name to WP-Parser, existing additional data should stay intact.
