HB does not do this.

On windows try mp4box or maybe iTunes.

MP3Tag will also do it.

Are there any plans to include this in future releases of Handbrake?

It seems like something that would really enhance the program.

No. We have explicitly made the decision to exclude this from the scope of what HandBrake is. HandBrake is a transcoder. Tagging requires a different UI that is best done as a separate program.

Also, not everyone wants the same kind of metadata. Myself, I prefer external nfo files that accompany the media files since this is what media players like kodi require.

And there are great programs available for scraping the desired data from sources like imdb and themoviedb (e.g tinyMediaManager or MediaElch). A good tagger is a complex piece of software all on it's own.
