Keyword and Star Rating visibility and filtering in shared Lightroom albums

This issue has been brought up before and ignored so I created an account in an effort to bring this up again: I use the tags/keywords in Lightroom CC to sort my pictures into useful categories, and I see no reason why I should not be able to provide that same luxury for anyone viewing my photos if I am so inclined.

Even when enabling metadata viewing for online albums, the keywords are still hidden. At the very least, it would be nice to just VIEW the star rating and the tags, but I don't see any reason why the filtering features that have already been integrated into Lightroom web could not also be used with shared albums. Filtering by tags (multiple selection) and star ratings would give Lightroom users incentive to stay within the Lightroom ecosystem for publishing their work instead of using it merely as a sorting tool to later upload to Facebook or Flickr.

If this is something the Lightroom team doesn't have interest in pursuing, it would also be very welcomed in Adobe Portfolios, along with integration of basic metadata information.
