Allow robots meta-tag to be overridden by page settings (PageHeadText)

Description

Sometimes we need to customize the robots meta tag to "NOINDEX, FOLLOW" which is not possible at the moment (the page settings allows changing between "NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW" and "INDEX, FOLLOW").

Would be great to have a way to manually override the robots tag by setting it in the PageHeadText property (page settings).

This change is not working

Test Case:
In latest 7.4.0 build (I used 280)
Create a new page
In Page Settings > Advanced Tab scroll down to "Page Header Tags"
In the text box add:

<meta id="MetaRobots" name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" NAME="ROBOTS" />

Expand "Other Settings" directly below and uncheck "Allow Indexing:"

Click "Update Page" at bottom left
Take the page out of Edit mode
Hover over Tools and click "Clear Cache"

Once this has completed right click onto the page, select "View Source" from the menu
View the ROBOTS META ID entry

Actual Result:

<meta id="MetaRobots" name="ROBOTS" /><meta content="INDEX, FOLLOW" name="ROBOTS" />

Expected Result:

<meta id="MetaRobots" name="ROBOTS" /><meta content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" NAME="ROBOTS" />

This is also occurring in upgraded sites

cannot recreate - I simply added <meta id="MetaRobots" name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" NAME="ROBOTS" /> into the page header tags textbox and then it rendered within the page (note: I did not uncheck any other field, or clear cache)

<meta id="MetaRobots" name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW" NAME="ROBOTS" />
