This should be possible from Houdini V12.1.99.
We submitted this RFE some weeks ago and this is what I got a week after
submiting it from SESI:

Side Effects Support Ticket: #8976

Hello Pablo,

In today's build, (Houdini 12.1.99), our developers have completed this RFE.

These are their changes:

    - Add methods to get the worldToCamera, worldToNDC and cameraToNDC
transforms from the creation options.  These are probably only valid
during rendering from mantra.

    - Save the worldToCamera and worldToNDC transform matrices.
    - Save some other of the standard EXR attributes (and load as well):
	* owner
	* comments (along with the Houdini-centric "comment" field)
	* capDate


Unfortunately I haven't had time to test it yet, too much shots to do :)
I believe others studios have been asked for this and is certainly
quite useful to store random info in the EXR headers.
I also found this Ptthon module which is great to work with EXR files in pipe:

Actually my workaround before SESI add this feature is to make a
general purpose  Python script to process EXR headers, and is what we
use at the moment.
