FRV ratings/labels not written to DNG files?

I'm finding that if my original raw files are converted to DNG using Adobe DNG Converter, and then assigned ratings or labels in FRV, the info is written to an XMP file it creates rather than to the DNG file. Abobe Bridge and Lightroom then ignore the newly created XMP, as they seem to expect all metadata to be in the DNG. Is there a way to assign ratings/labels to DNG files in FRV, and be able to read them in the Adobe programs?

Dear Sir:

The policy Adobe maintains is this: settings in sidecar XMP files are processed if the XMP files are more recent than respective DNG files. Please check the dates within a pair of DNG and XMP files and see if XMP is more recent. If it is not, Lightroom will ignore it.
