Question iOS 5 Devs: Can You Edit Song Info on the Device?

I like to have my songs/albums in original date order in my playlists. A lot of songs I buy that were originally released in the 80's or 90's for example, usually have a much later date on them by default in iTunes, especially if they came from a later compilation or something.
Anyway, with iOS 5 "cutting the cord", is track info editable on the device itself, or must I use iTunes for that?

Also, whilst I'm here, can you subscribe to podcasts on the device in iOS 5 too?
iPhone 6 Plus (64GB Space Grey)
iPad Air (32GB Wi-Fi Space Grey)
RMBP (2012)(2.7GHz i7 - 16GB RAM - 512GB SSD)

Classic Arcade iOS 'MAME' video playlist.

No, track info is not editable on iOS5.

and so far, you cannot subscribe to podcasts on iOS5

Tho i would have thought that if you're already subscribed to a podcast, it should update when wirelessly syncing to your iTunes overnight, but i cannot test this as not running a mac

It allows you to edit song info, album art, and many other things.
