that seems to be too complicated. IMHO as an archiver it should be able to "recreate original" file with original name, time stamps and probably permissions (these permissions are still more debatable). That's my personal opinion anyway.
With meta one could utilise trailing data space but that would be in lzip not lziprecover - at least that's what I would do. Don't know only what format would be actually the best - own format or xml/other meta format (just a mental exercise).
Without built in mechanism I can see only one way - with tar:
$ tar c file.name | lzip - > file.name.tar.lz

which isn't the most elegant as I create "double" archive but that's the only way I can see.
