You can use Set/GetPropertyKeys as

   * Set/Get property keys. Property keys can be digest by some rendering
   * passes.
   * For instance, the user may mark a prop as a shadow caster for a
   * shadow mapping render pass. Keys are documented in render pass classes.
   * Initial value is NULL.
  virtual void SetPropertyKeys(vtkInformation *keys);

In that you can stuff whatever information objects you want. It is a bit
odd the first time you work with information objects but that is how we
currently do it.
