Reading the wiki page on scripts and the protocol specification today, I was glad to find out,

It's possible to add arbitrary data to any transaction by just adding some data along with OP_DROP.
It could be handy to be able to add a hash when needed.

Here are the sources I've found -

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Script

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Protocol_specification

Are there any other good sources of information for the Bitcoin protocol?

Interesting, you could embed information which has a timestamp and is signed by all following blocks Smiley Don't know what use this is at the moment.

For more information on bitcoin, there is the paper by Satoshi Nakamoto, "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System", http://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf which I try to understand at the moment.
