Inside git? No. Those details are not even possible to represent in standard

Using multiple repositories and controlling access through those might work,
but I bet that doesn't meet your needs.

If you added the extra metadata through a trusted process and denied users
any access to the stored data it would make a wonderful backend to build
such a system on though.
