Could server demos pick up on the name of the server and the message of the day upon player connect, and include this as metadata? Perhaps the location of the server too. This would help confirm where league and tournament games were played and would generally be pretty cool to have.

serverside demos are technically not different from client demos.

we could store the motd in the description field of the demo header.

servertitle is a bit more complicated, because the server would need to send it to the clients first. maybe its better if admins mention the server title or number in the motd instead.

Just added the server banner and IP address/port to demos (both client and server-side). Beware that such info is not meant to be a guarantee of anything; the only guarantee you can have about demos actually representing games on specific servers is if you collect the demo directly from the server yourself and if you trust the server admin to not have tampered with it.
