Out-of-the-box workflows in SharePoint

It seems silly that the out-of-the-box approval workflow sends an email to the approver only with a link to the document and does not contain all the metadata like an alert does.  I would think that approving a document means you also approve of the metadata.  Am I missing something?  Then my dilemma becomes that the approver for that specific content type just needs to set up an alert for that content type in that library and then click on the links in the alert to get to the edit menu so that they can approve from there.  However, this will require going through IT to get their permissions changed.

So restated - How can I have a nice approval workflow that is easy for the approver to see the metadata as well?  Does anyone disagree with what I stated above?  Must I have SP designer?
