"Added support for the different metadata versions specified in PEPs 241, 314, and 345. Distributions now parse and expose only the attributes corresponding to their metadata version, which defaults to the version parsed from the PKG-INFO file. The programmer can override that version when creating the distribution object."
I could as well use 1.1.

Apparently pkginfo supports PEP 345 (see above).
