For simple searching, there's nothing preventing it on a technical basis -
its just adding a field.

For the larger topic of enhanced searching, and in conjunction, mass
editing, things would be more involved. In order for such a system to
really be useful it'd need to handle at least some type of
complex/conditional searching (find all habitable planets with a
population > 10 million and set the political affiliation to X). Its
certainly possible - it'd just require quite a significant bit of
programming time.
