If this is a lab setting, creating a small batch script to fetch the samplerate tag and passing it to a playback program like ffplay doesn't seem a very big deal? If you want playback on current existing, available hardware, augmenting the spec is not going to work.

Definitely not a lab setting I'm afraid, I'm just experimenting at
home with my regular hi-fi gear. I'm just using clementine and roon
for playback and both load libFLAC so I guess I could create a custom
flac library to support a bastardised flac container.
